Twisted Metal

For some reason, this staircase encapsulated the horrific intensity of this bomb for me more than anything else - despite the partial collapse of this building and the photos of the absolute devastation surrounding it. This metal spiral staircase is, of course, in the A-Bomb Dome as well. If you look closely, you can see how it was warped, bent, and twisted from the heat and pressure of the explosion. Amazing that a metal staircase could be melted in just an instant. Posted by Picasa
