“Industrial Window” : Hiroshima, Japan, 21st February 2011
Well, since this is the 300th photo I’ve published to this blog, I’d better make it something special.
This was taken just over a year ago down near the sea in a new architectural wonder in town that is….the rubbish disposal plant.
I don’t know exactly what goes on here – some kind of recycling, I suppose, but hats off to the local authorities for making it a fun place that includes an interactive exhibition for kids and a nice grassy park area next to the sea. They really have turned a load of crap into something worth looking at!
The building itself is great, and here I found the perfect opportunity to deploy the ultra-wide zoom to good effect.
Through the window we can glimpse the Inland Sea, with another industrial facility in the distance: downstairs leads to the park area.
This photo is one of my personal favourites: I can only hope that I haven’t already posted this, since although I keep meticulous records, I’m getting some serious deja-vu from this one…
