Dark Roasted Blend is a daily updated photo blog with “weird and wonderful things”. And yes, some of them really are. This blog entry is a highlight of some of my favorite sights.
Tokyo Storm Water System
Located below Tokyo and looking like something straight out of Total Recall, these cathedral-like caverns are built as buffers to prevent flooding during heavy rain and typhoon seasons.
Be sure to check out the original photos as well.
Dubai has a lot of fascinating architecture. Their artificial islands are some of the more prominent. They can also be found on Google Maps.
Mega Machines and Big Structures
Almost a trademark of Dark Roasted Blend. A few selected entries:
Creepy High Voltage Installations
Alternative Energy Super Projects
Ultimate Moving Experience II
The Biggest and Hungriest Machines
Even Bigger Machines Dig Bigger Holes
Now that is one mean machine. Can’t help thinking of Naked Lunch: “I use a Krupps Dominator myself. Company policy.”
