The Death of a Neighborhood

Today as a treat, besides just cranes, I present you with another piece of heavy machinery. I believe it’s used to drive those I-beams deep into the ground. Besides construction equipment, a poignant photograph of the remains of the neighborhood fast-food joint. Remember to click on the thumbnail for a larger view of each image.

I dub thee Yuccae Distructivus.

Fenced off with a big gash in the roof adds to the distressed atmosphere of Yucca Street.

About Russell Smith

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Natasha, Maxwell, Tigger and Nigel.
