I seem to have found a new way to procrastinate working on my novel: participating in photo challenges!
But procrastination aside, I had been wanting to share these photos for a while and hadn’t found a good place to do it. (They are not mundane enough for Mundane Monday and there’s not a Thursday Door in sight). They were taken at the Gasometer in Oberhausen, Germany, near where my husband grew up. We visited the main exhibit during our visit this summer.
People also throw coins off the top viewing area of the Gasometer, in spite of signs telling you not to in several different languages.
So, “take a photo from an actual edge, like a balcony, a window, or a seaside bluff (wherever you are, stay safe!). Focus on a sharp angle or object, or show us the outer margins of a building, a face, or a book.”
These views are all angles, margins, edges, balconies, and windows. German engineering, y’know?
It was a place to take a seat or like back, relax, and listen to some soothing music while the patterns on the globe swirled and changed before your eyes. As I watched, and looked at the rest of the exhibit, I sometimes wondered, am I seeing a planet on the edge? Edge of what?
