Maybe a companion piece to this one...http://digitalguff.aminus3.com/image/2007-03-06.html


The following text is for people interested in participating in the next Am3 theme project. Read, and feel free to copy and paste this text on your own image page once you have the details...Information obtained from Damon Schreiber's Photoblog

"Ok, here's how the next theme's going to work. I want it to be open to anyone, but there's a catch: if you comment on my photos until the middle of April, I'll send you the details (Aminus3 members only naturally). Then once you have them, you can pass them along to anyone who comments on your photos. This way, we can play a fun game of whispers, and see what we come up with at the end. Of course, you can let me know if you're not interested."

Mike Cash from Kiryu, Japan

A very well-converted b&w image with crisp tones. Grandma looks like she's hitting the onset of osteoporosis. Wonder how many more years she'll be able to chance something like this. All the concrete reminds me of a sign I saw the other day, and one which I wondered if any other country in the world could put up, let alone one which professes such a profound connection with nature: "River Under Construction".

@Mike Cash: I know Mike... I remember reading about this 'phenomenon' in Japan, and how it's a bit of a money-spinner for the construction industry and ministry. But I think people are getting to the end of their tether with that kind of behaviour. Unfortunately the damage seems to be mostly done regarding Japan's rivers. Never mind the esthetic side of things, wonder what the environmental consequences will be? Concrete doesn't soak up excess river flow like a natural river bank does...
