The days of swinging a big iron ball are long gone, demolition these days is more like deconstruction. A long arm excavator with a powerful claw pulls the building apart, and then places all the material for recycling into big piles or straight into trucks. It does make for slow progress though, especially when there is only one doing the work.
A dry dusty July day meant that large clouds of dust were thrown up when an artic arrived on site to haul away the scrap. I captured a few of the excavator through the dust – it seemed quite symbolic of the destruction and mayhem that were being wreaked on the site.
