Georgia Power has updated their photo gallery
to include photos showing the placement of the first part of the new Unit 3 containment vessel at the Vogtle Electric Generating Plant near Waynesboro, Georgia. No small task
, as the component is almost 130 feet across, nearly 40 feet tall, and weighs 900 tons. Vogtle Units 3 & 4 are the first new nuclear reactors to be built in the US since Three Mile Island. They're based on the Westinghouse AP1000 two-loop pressurized water reactor
design. The gallery includes some high resolution gems like this one
showing the completed placement.

"I was thinking about the recession and what that meant for talented people who may have lost their jobs. Are you still a dancer if you are not paid to perform? Or are you still a chef when you don't have a kitchen to cook in? It is about people who walk the streets with this incredible skill who could just advertise their ability any time they wanted. Dance is always a part of them and they are always dancers"

Nice Flash presentation of images
on his site from photographer Hans Neleman's books "Night Chicas", "Moko-Maori Tattoo", "Body Transformed", and "Silence". NSFW, fer shure. (Note that you can switch
from slideshow mode to manual with controls on the right.) More Neleman
at Kodak's Legends Online
(work-safe), and more from "Night Chicas" here
(almost work-safe, but if the policy is strict - don't go.)

German Objectivist photographer Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) once said "the best constructions for industrial design have already been anticipated in nature." Do your eyes a favor and look here
