15 Years On...

The Cosmo Square development in Osaka. Despite a few impressive buildings (see previous few days' shots), its never really taken off... a famous 'white elephant' here in Japan.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Desolation and your treatment adds to that mood (i like it). First time to heard the expression "white elephant".
