PX No.184 (SX No. 192)
CAMERA: Polaroid SX-70 Alpha 1 SE
FILM: Polaroid 779 Film (expired 3/2005)
LOCATION: Atomium - Brussels
Visiting Brussels with my new friend Benoit Geets who runs a great coffee shop in Mons (la Livre de Café.) He gave me a introductory tour of his favorite city. First stop was the Atomium, an architectural marvel built for the 1958 Brussels World's Fair "Expo '58". Designed by André Waterkeyn, it is 102-metres (335 ft) tall, with nine steel spheres connected so that the whole forms the shape of a unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. From Wikipedia.
This image looks up one of the "futuristic" staircase that connects two of the giant spheres.
CROSSED WITH: PX No. 181
LEFT: On 6/30/09 at the location on Rue 'dEnghien of the window sill where PX No.181 was photographed just off the Grand Place in Mons, Belgium near the Chi Chi's restaurant.
