Is this your trip to Volklingen? It certainly looks imposing!

I like this. Don't know what it is. But i like it! ;)

They have started planting wheat fields in the Hütte!

I'm never quite sure whether I like industrial (or farming equipment). I admire its power and function but don't like all the hissing, grinding, dust and smoke that seem to go with them.

The current novel is certainly a very rich source of interesting quotes.

kobico, yes it is. The photo is slightly overexposured and so I thought it would fit for b/w.

ER, eh, I am not so sure - one of the many pipes and tubes and conduits a steelworks has. With some additional vegetation ... .

AB, :-D

Joan Elizabeth, puh I am thinking I will switch to quote from some New Yorker short stories sooner or later --- I am at page 452 of 815 --- I might need some change, ;-)

This steelworks stopped production around 1986, so no hissing and grinding, but lots of wonderfully coloured rust and moss.

I keep looking at this and all I can think of is something obscene someone said to me once when I was doing some construction work in a place that looked a lot like this. My goodness, that was a lifetime ago.

Martina said...

Paula, hm ... now that you said it ... hm ... now I will never look at this pipes and drains like I looked before ...
