The wonders of demolition

There's something so compelling about a wreck site. What is it? It may be the awe at the folks who can actually blow up one building at busy intersection downtown without touching the buildings right smack beside it. Or maybe it's the image of controlled chaos of the floors with all their wires and such slouching down onto each other.

Well, here are some photos that I took with my Treo 680 (gotta love technology) at the intersection of Connecticut Avenue & K Street NW, downtown. Same building from two different views. Kind of incredible. On the street level was a pile of metal scraps that are going to be salvaged, I guess. Maybe I'll go take a picture of that too.
