Well, depends on the demolition AND the photographer. Right? 😉

I got a panic-call from a woman at a number in a small community in the Southern part of the country, and since I am located on the West Coast, I thought maybe it was the wrong number. But no, panic and hurry, thecustomer, NKR Demolition Sweden,  needed someone to document a complicated demolition of a bridge for power-cables in a environmentally protected area. They wanted it reportage-style, and I don’t often do that kind of stuff, but what the heck; I had time to spare and it would probably be pretty relaxed, so I said yes. When I arrived at the scene later the same day, I understood why they wanted photographs. This was a complicated thing. Normally they would just have blasted the thing with dynamite or had a huge excavator to crush the thing into the stream, and then dig the rubble up and shit it away. Now the had to build a support-structure, rest the bridge on that and roll it off like a rail-cart out of concrete. PLUS: the bridge was too heavy for any crane big to fit in there to lift in one piece, so it had to be cut up. The put on a lorry and rolled off the premises. And this is what it looked like! Photos of slow, clean demolition. I think they turned out pretty nice! 🙂
