One Word Photo Challenge: Smog

Godzilla versus the Smog Monster was one of my favourite Japanese movies, made way back in 1971, when smog was a growing concern in all the industrialized countries.

Now the western world has more or less cleaned up its act but smog now blankets large portions of Asia in rather horrific concentrations.

Smog obscures Hong Kong’s harbour in 2007. I’ve read that they have since put up billboards along the harbour walkway showing the way the view looks on the rare occurence of a clear day.

  2. I love your abstract! Thank you for sharing these images. Whether I mean to or not, I feel so disconnected from the the world outside the walls of my home sometimes. It’s good to have another perspective shared with you. I don’t think I realized the smog got that bad.
