#FriFotos: The Haunting Clocks of Hiroshima

In Hiroshima, you are at once bombarded by two clocks. The first is a Peace Watch, keeping count of the number of days passed since the first dropping of the atomic bomb, and the number of days since the last nuclear test. This photo was taken on April 28, 2007.

The second is an image inside the museum, a photograph of the effect the atomic bomb had on watches; that is, time simply stopped at 8:15am, August 6, 1945.
