    Cool set! I hope that you meant "penal" colony - the other spelling conjures up some disturbing imagery. :biggrin:

    Having and old friend (now gone) that had quit a nice woodworking shop I am always amazed by the scale of places like this. Guess I couldn't just pickup and move that hammer and lathe. :wink:

    Great images. I hope the machines were not instruments of torture for the inmates.

    Some of the shots could be breathtaking in black and white.
