Still On Duty


Part 3 of the Lime factory in the industrial area of Tochigi Prefecture. Note that the building shown in this photo is NOT abandoned. Believe it or not, it's still on duty! Over time it's all been covered with lime, which makes this photo look almost like monochrome.

This is a That's my world and White Wednesday #89 entry.

  1. I think this looks like something from a science fiction movie after something destructive has happened. Sure makes a neat photo!

  2. This factory is still working? Wow!! I can't wait to see what it looks like inside. Why it accumulated this much lime? A very good job in capturing this one. Thanks for sharing and the visit!

  3. I wonder what all that lime dust does to the lungs of people in the area?

  4. Terrific capture as always, Yoshi! I, too, wonder about the lime dust and what it does to the lungs of people in that area! Have a great week!

  5. Oh wow... I thought it WAS a black and white until you said otherwise and I looked closer! Incredible!

  6. If I understood correctly, this is the true color of the building. I wonder about the health of individuals working within or nearby. Also, the structure reminds me a little of a strange futurist movie set of an abandoned city after some catastrophic event.

  8. It is not always the purely beautiful that makes for an interesting picture although to my eyes this is has the beauty of age and long usage like and old person showing their life etched on their face.

    Yes, beautiful indeed and the icing of lime almost makes it look like a snow scene.

  9. I like this kind of photo, I think because it is so stark, and perhaps so aweful in the old sense of the word. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  10. Seriously that's not a monochrome shot!? It looks so out of this worldish - great shot to show!

  11. I'm guessing this place wouldn't make the top 10 places to work list. Makes an interesting photo though.

  12. The laundry that needs to be done for the workers there! o.O

  13. This lime-covered factory does look like snow sculpture. I'm also concerned about the workers' and neighbors' health.

    I'll keep up with you, too. Thank you.

  16. ただいま!
    昨日絵のようなコーンウォールから帰ったばかりなのです。

    あ、そうなんですか?
    灰色なので、廃墟みたいですね!
    不思議なモノクロなんです。

  18. Lime stone is beautiful but people seem to be paying for that. Excellent and sad!
