NUCLEAR PLANT - GOURDS
The sight along the road / Passing scenery


I had seen the gourds at a nuclear power plant.

The aspect, colour, shape of gourds have made an imprint on my eyes.

After a few years, I had passed in front of another nuclear power plant.

The plant built on a sand dune, pine groves buckled by sea wind spread around there.

Suddenly, a silhouette of a giant gourd appeared in the scenery I saw.

The light green colour of gourd is creepy, I felt a whiff/atmosphere of criticality.
