The Atomium

This is the Atomium, as far as I know the only pavilion left over from the 1958 Brussels World's Fair. Sadly, these are the only surviving pictures I took while working at NATO headquarters in Brussels, 1988. I used a Pentax K1000 loaded with Kodak Gold 400 film and the standard SMC-Pentax 50mm lens. They are moderately interesting only in the sense that this was more than a decade before the Atomium was renovated after the turn of the 21st century.
