PhotoHunt#9 Metal



This metal is part of the Twin Towers of New York City. It is very thick and heavy but it is a silent witness to the fury of the heat of the burning buildings last September 11. The picture was taken in the State Museum of South Carolina.

Indeed...and RJ says, it's sobering.
A reminder of the turmoil this country has been in for 8 years.

My metal is posted. Drop by for a visit if you can!
Happy Hunting.

Look like an important piece of metal in history. I hate terrorist. I feel so sad that terrorism attacked Mumbai, India a few days ago.

Great choice for this theme! We should not soon forget the evil in some hearts...

When I visited the New York State Museum in Albany, NY, there was a huge, huge room filled with all the debris that had been collected-- shoes, airplane parts, etc. :(

I did Photo Hunt today, too. I hope you get a chance to visit and leave your link. :)

Good choice. Terrorists are BAD! Everyone hates them except themselves.

Hope you have a great week.

Oh wow... what an incredible find!

And to answer your question:

What makes a pool faster?

Depth, racing blocks, gutter sizes of the pool, water flow, lane rope sizes, lane sizes, timing systems, wall surfaces, warm down areas, size of facility, air circulation, water temperature and I am not sure about the type of filter system - ie chlorine etc..

And that was art in my metal photo, so no ladder there! :)
