Ruined Kitchen

Photo Information
This is the kitchen of the worker's lodging house of the closed Mercury Mine. I only recently learned the sad story from a local watchman that the company did not take any precaution and 60 workers died because of poisoning, and then I realised that the villagers wreaked their revenge on the lodging.
Please view large.
Note: all the photos had been taken before I learned the sad story.

They even tore all the window frames and doors and left no plaster and surface of the bricks at the back out of anger and agony. Such a sad story!

You certainly captured the mood Nezih.

Man's inhumanity towards man. You can understand the anger and desire for revenge.

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

And here in Australia we have had a fairly recent case of a very large company poisoning it's workers with asbestos. Big business has a lot to answer for. This is a moody shot, Nezih. You can almost see the ghosts of the workers at the wimdow.

Very poignant picture, and such a sad sad story.
