Photographer's Note

This thing in the background was planed to be an atomic power plant on the banks of the river Rhine.It was called the "schneller Brueter"that means it is special kind of technic that uses the power of the Uran much more effective than an usual atomic power plant.
It was build from 1973 - 1985.The price for this was round about 5 thousand Millions DM.
During the time of building there were massive protests against this power plant.
In 1991 the politicians decided that there was no need for this Atomic power plant,- so it never starts working!
In 1995 the complete thing was sold,for little money,to a clever businessman.
He made a amusement park(!) out of it and today you can stay there in a Hotel,play tennis or other sports while your kids enjoing the Merry-go rounds!
