TALBOT


















































A nostalgic view to the past awaits the visitor to the quaint old town of Talbot in central Victoria - Australia. Talbot is located within what was a very rich gold mining area between Maryborough and Clunes. Originally servicing a mining population of over 15,000 during the 1850s, today only a few hundred people live in Talbot. The town retains a number of historic buildings from its prosperous gold mining days. [link 1]  [link 2]

WAVE CONTROL





















Erosion control on the Kishiwada industrial waterfront, Osaka - Japan. Tetrapods are massive concrete items used in breakwaters. Their shape is designed to dissipate the force of incoming waves by allowing water to flow around rather than against it, and to reduce displacement by allowing a random distribution of tetrapods to interlock. In the labyrinth below but above the water line there were cats running about and feeding on fish scraps that fishermen were tossing to them. [link]
