You Can't Photograph That, Continued
so, yesterday, while taking my usual (almost) daily stroll around the Atlantic Yards footprint, i notice that the gate to the recently closed Carlton Avenue Bridge has been left partially open. seeing this as an opportunity to snap a few unobstructed photos of the soon-to-be-demolished bridge, i walk to a spot just outside of the gate, being careful to remain outside of the fenced-off area, and begin to shoot. ["soon-to-be-demolished" is subjective. it's been closed for over a month with no visible signs of demolition] i manage to take about a dozen shots when i hear a shrill woman's voice yelling:There is more and it makes fascinating reading. Mr. Collins' flickr sets are available here.
