This is a photo of one of the greatest engineering feats in Swedish/Danish history: The Oresunds Bridge (pops). As seen from inside a moving train, @ aprox half way, looking out over a family of windmills. I commute this bridge every day and think that it, and the windmills, are amongst the most beautiful of industrial structures that I have ever seen. *sniff*

All in all, parts on this thing represent telco technologies dating from WWI through the first electronic and later digital switches, as well as early data and fiber optic transmission equipment. Coworkers and I have added bits to it too since these photos were taken a couple years ago, and the philodendron now reaches the mag tape ring at the top.

Hanging planter I made from old stuff I found around a telco Central Office. Among other trash-to-treasure parts on it, it includes a mag tape fringe strung from part of an old terminal block.

2/3, more shots of the paper mill and falls. The locks were recently closed due to budget constraints, but the mills are still open.

Don't have much but this was a few blocks away from where I am staying in Seward. Is a coal loading facility adjacent to the cruise ship dock.
