Today we wrap up our series of the active demolition in progress. As you read this blog, this entire lot is vacant and will remain so until the new development begins.
The dust flies in the air, the excavator is in mid bite…. the roof and framing are now really just a loose bunch of match sticks waiting to be plucked and dropped into the refuse bin. In some ways when I look at this image from the perspective of personification, I see a structure in the middle of a very nasty lobotomy. Without anesthetics.
From this side around back, we can clearly see that half the house is completely gone, and the remaining half doesn’t have long to go, either. It’s starting to resemble more a landfill than a house now. If you look closely at this picture, you can see The Toad’s Chariot in the background there.
And for our final image of the series, we present you something full of drama and dichotomy… here we see the sign for the new proposed condo unit sitting in front of a yard full of… a mess… of Biblical proportions. Everyone who previewed the series before we posted it here this week for you commented on this image as being utterly ironic. “There Goes The Neighborhood” describes this on several different levels.
We really hope you enjoyed this weeks series on the demolition. Next week we start anew with a fantastic new series of photos captured at Hatley Park Castle last weekend. Thanks so much for your visit, please feel free to leave a comment as we love to hear from our visitors!!
