photoblog image MacDonald House

MacDonald House

It had just started to drizzle and I did not notice the droplet on the lens until I saw this image on the computer. Anyway, this is the MacDonald House, hit by a terrorist bomb in 1965 resulting in three deaths and several injured. Then it housed HSBC, now Citi is visible, do not know if there are others today in this building.

So I Googled it, Ayush, and got my education. History seems to keep repeating itself, sadly!

Ayush Basu: You can say that again. The most effective way to combat it is to simply go about your daily life as usual and not bow down to feel subdued or panicky.

I like the persective cause by the angle looking up
Ayush Basu: Thanks for dropping by regularly Chantal, yeah I like the view too. I am delighted I had the wide angle lens with me to take this shot.
Compelling angles, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: the wide angle lens helped with that, i wouldn't have been able to capture all of this building on my 18mm lens.
Sad history, Ayush. Very interesting perspective for this shot.
Ayush Basu: Willful violence of any form is always deplorable. It is worse in several other countries.
Thanks for stopping by.
