I took this picture standing under the Atomium in Brussels. The Atomium is a monument built for Expo '58, the 1958 Brussels World's Fair. It is 102-metre (335-feet) tall, with nine steel spheres connected. The top sphere provides a panoramic view of Brussels. Each sphere is 18 metres in diameter. The vertical vertex contains lift which has been very fast and advanced at the time of building (the speed is 5 m/s).
The crane here below is very high. It is used for the construction of a new mall in Brussels, by keeping the wall of an old department store.
This is one of the shopping galeries in Brussels, with a very high ceiling
and here is our weeping willow covered with ice. It stands in our garden and has become very high in 32 years. When we moved in our house it looked like a little twig.
