Passing under the shinkansen (bullet train) tracks on my way home.

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!

Held together with rubber bands? I'm still trying to get used to Daryl. I have to look at the link and think, oh yeah, Darou.

@Twelvebit: It should be an incredibly strong structure, number of earthquakes we have here! Thanks Twelvebit.

This is beautiful...I love the opening at the bottom, very classy black and white :)

I know the shinkansen is super hi-tech and everything, but that structure looks a bit iffy. At least the concrete supports are massively strong. Your picture too, brilliant record.

@Observing: Cheers Mike! As I said to Twelvebit, it ought to be very very strong! And where I live was the region affected by the Hanshin earthquake in 1995 - it withstood that...
