14 September 11

taking a bite
A house a few doors down from ours was being demolished, so lots of people were gathered in the alley to watch. I chose to watch from the street because I thought it would be more interesting to see things coming apart through the facade of the front. It's pretty amazing the skill and care that goes into something so destructive — obviously you can't just go in smashing things willy-nilly because you can't let debris hit the houses on either side. Tearing this roof away, he had to pull it upwards and backwards towards the lot. And I must say I enjoy the crunchy noise it made.
