Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows


Weekly Photo Challenge no. 40: WINDOWS – it’s a sad, sad situation – but at least soothing sunlight falls through the large windows of a silent abandoned factory in Bochum, a city in Germany. Bochum lost the coal mines activity, the steel industry, recently a production unit of NOKIA and – (on the picture) an abandoned hall of OPEL / General Motors: some parts of automobile industry too. That’s the result of globalism. comment by marineavoile59 / Marine Armstrong: “…it would be a great space for a restaurant, a dance school, a photo gallery, a library… and so many other things… I hope it gets rescued…” – my reply: in the meantime it was destroyed for a cheap global shopping mall…
P.S.:
the mustard colored coverings remained from the last event in this room: an exhibition of modern paintings (weeks before: Opel car exhibition); 80 years before: a train repair factory, in the middle of the circle various movable railway tracks; the wonderful half round architecture was extinguished last year a building like a box is now the ruler of the game: a cheap Penny-market for jobless people …

me commenting Dutch windows there: The Netherlands are that country with the most beautiful windows of the world. Wasn’t there a tax rule supporting large windows? Or is it to invite an optimized quantity of light into the dark long Dutch rooms? Narrow, long houses need large windows on the opposite walls – the light can run through the whole room immediately without any curves. (Good for blizzards too – to walk in – and directly out again on the opposite window …)
