Ramp Demolition VII

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 17 September 2010 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Poof. In less than a weekend - the bus ramp was gone.

You can toggle back to yesterday to see what this looked like just a day before. The buses that used that overpass would continue on to the right of where those palm trees stand and then enter the Transbay Terminal on the distant overpass. That overpass will come down in another week or two.

A little exif data for Denny:

Canon 5D w/ Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS 'L' lens: ISO 320 - 120mm - f/5.6 - 1/800 -

Enough demolition for now...

[tomorrow]: Lacey!

The order never ceased in any of the pictures, as if not to spoil
the picturesque quality of the image.

Wow they did a good job I will say that, and before I even noticed Marie's comment above, I was going to say basically the same thing!!
This is a "two-fer" image if not more: Two marvelous messages in one. Great work here Stephen

The before and after is great. This clarity of the glass building in the background in this shot really points out how much dust was in the air in yesterday's version.

I was so mesmerized by all the patterns of the reflections and windows and cars lined up on the street that I missed the fact that it was the same scene as yesterday minus a ramp.

you captured this bit of history nicely........amazing how they can make something that stood for so long, disappear so completely, and so quickly !!
