History: The concrete structures you see in this image are the back sides of a series of bomb shelters from the cold war era. They are situated between the industrial and residential areas. This is now a parkway complete with park benches.

The path draws my eye through the image. The shelters give a nice repetition through the image.

Reminds me of a cemetary in New Orleans, where burials are done above ground.

Relics of the cold war that we will hopefully not ever need. An interesting and pretty image. I like that warm light in the trees.

Give the right moment, those would look most welcoming. Coming out afterward might have been very different.
