Saturday Snapshots #40

Brussels Atomium - June 2007

The Atomium is one of the the most famous landmarks in Brussels.  Built for the 1958 Brussels World Fair, it consists of nine steel spheres connected in such a way by tunnels that the entire thing looks like an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times.  The spheres contain exhibition halls and all the connecting tunnels house escalators and staircases like the one pictured.  I love the contrast between the round tunnel and the jagged line of the bannister, and the strong resemblance that this photo bears to a Giacomo Balla painting. 

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister. Click here for a full list of photographs previously featured.  All photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store.
