Sinister Sounds

2006-05-10 03.jpg

There are some sinister sounds emanating from the shipyard. On my run yesterday evening, I was met with this kind of grating, grinding drilling-- prime evidence of demolition. Piece by piece, the buildings are coming down. This morning more windows resembled skeletal carcasses. If you look closely through the gaps, it is apparent that several sections no longer have rear walls.

The deconstruction of the shipyard is accelerating. I wonder how quickly it will move. From the looks and sounds, my guess is fast.

An even uglier sight from the backside, where they cannot shield us from the demolition. I'll try and take "What Boat?" over one afternoon and see what I can shoot. I'll add that "sinister" is one word that I (to date) have never associated with the Hook, but in this case it seems appropriate.
