Sleeping 15 meters from the open pit copper mine

Now days you don't even need your own memories as you can click on Internet and find the images of the places you didn't photograph as a child but you still dream about and you want to share their visions with your new loved ones.
Here two photographs of Ajo, Arizona where I lived as a teenager. The house where I lived was a few feet away form the open pit as you see on the second photograph. I was not able to listen to the radio as the copper and other metals distorted the radio waves. So not even the folk music came into my ears.
I still have a lot of mixed feelings about that year. There is more to write about, I will leave it for later.
