You are far too kind Loudesa. I say the building ground is ugly. the new houses are good, but that ship is a navy destroyer, very powerful very bad. regards from Glasgow Scally.

I like the title, Scally! :)) This photo makes my imagination roaming about. Interesting building site and atmosphere! I like how it's composed with the excavaters digging in the wounded earth on the first level, on the second the cranes on the ship and on land like giants or giant gallows and in the office buildings and housings the human beings, slaves and master of those huge machines. The overcast sky adding to the scene an atmosphere of sinister doom!

:)) No, no, I am a rather positive woman, so I prefer the more bright view, which tells me about the ingenuity of human beings, how they transform the bare ground to comfortable settlements for a world in the future. We (the human beings) have the choice between the warm housing and the destruction, represented here by the destroyer, in our near future. May we choose life for us and the next generations!

Scally, thank you for the photo, which has given me the momentum for reflections! That's what in my opinion makes a good photo!

Best wishes, May

The UGLY is mess, as you say May, tearing at the Earth by the Monsters, The GOOD is the Bright flats that now sparkle where once there was only industrial grime. The BAD is that Aegis Destroyer armed with the latest powerful weapons. that are so effective they can hit a baseball sized object, travelling at the speed of sound, at a distance of 15 Kilometres. They have just completed at least 6 of them at an Astronomical cost. When you give these toys to the Forces they usually find some excuse to play with them, Switzerland is OK May foreby being Neutral it is well away from the Sea,LOL cheers scally.

Did not know that the Duncan was the last. Stuart. It looks like there will be a gap for the sheet metal men, if they don,t o.k. these Carriers soon? :-( scally.
