weekly photo challenge: wall

Posted on

We’ve chosen to share “The Wall of Tears” found on Isabela Island of the Galapagos Islands. It is about 25 metres tall and its construction is said to have been the cause of many deaths.

It was built in the late 1940s through to 1950s by prisoners on the island.

This wall was the result of many tears as well as locals saying that cries can be heard coming from it sometimes.

We couldn’t go past this scene of a kitchen made to scale to share; the art of scale miniatures.

weekly photo challenge: warmth

Posted on

While travelling through China, it was very common to see these attached to the mopeds!

Something that will provide warmth …. these look like that they can keep the hands warm in winter! 🙂

weekly photo challenge: gone but not forgotten

Posted on

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is dedicated to the first city in the world to experience a nuclear attack. 

As with all memorials, it serves as a reminder. Although all those lives are gone, they are not forgotten. The war is also gone, but will not be forgotten.

Towards the centre of the park is a monument that holds the names of all the people killed by the bomb.

The monument is aligned in such a way that when we look through the arch, we see the Peace Flame and theHiroshima Peace Memorial (i.e. Genbaku Dome or A-Bomb Dome).

The dome marks where the first atomic bomb exploded on the morning of August 6, 1945.  It is the skeleton of the actual building that was there that day. What we see is what remained and has been preserved.
