Photographer's Note

This Photo was taken just a few days after the 58th anniversary of the dropping of the world's first atomic bomb.

The A-bomb Dome is the ruins of the former Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall destroyed by the the world's first A-bomb on August 6, 1945. The bomb exploded about 600 meters above the building. Today it stands as a witness to the destructive power of nuclear weapons.
