Don Jail Demolition

I am drawn to the sight of demolitions. This is partly because of the hidden views you get to see of structures that are in the process of being taken down. This building was a place of great suffering. It stood in a residential neighbourhood as opposed to an isolated place.  I imagine the houses grew up around it over time. I stopped to photograph the process last week and may return to see it at different stages. The yellow brick building in the background was the original jail. It has now been turned into an administrative building for the recently constructed grey rehab hospital behind it.

I have made visual art works all my life. Arts of May shows some of my explorations in different media and the inspiration I take from other artists and works. An earlier blog, of humans and nature, concentrates on my photographs of natural places that help my spirit.
