TSC: what's left

There used to be two (or possibly three?) other sets of train tracks running through here, unused long enough for a forest to grow over it (this last one is (not very, but still) active) - the tree in the first note is from november. Not long after that, they cut down all the trees and started clearing everything out; and then one snowy afternoon in january I watched from the window as they used a ginormous magnet to pull up all the old tracks.

This is all part of a project to extend one of the subway lines; there's also a bike-path extension going on which will run through the same space, so ultimately there will be new train tracks and new trees...

(better bigger on black)

That is an excellent question. Also, you'll probably need a crane...

During the week, it's an active construction site; this was late saturday afternoon, so I was the only one there (I may have climbed through a hole in the fence (under the moose stairs))...

oh well go back and snitch that moose sign... if there was a hole in the fence then it was meant to be really!

Perfect for blackandwhite. It looks really desolate and I wonder what will be done with all that space now.

Yet another thing left behind. :D I'm not actually sure where the rest of that truck was; there was a bunch of construction equipment parked back in the other direction (you can see a crane in the third note), but nothing that looked like it was missing a one of those... :)

the times they change and with them the needs and perceived requirements of the populus. service providers and government all too often get it wrong especially with their short termism attitudes. the railways in britain were decimated after one notoriously shortsighted review. now some rail tracks are being relayed thank god as cities become choked with traffic jams.

I really like that you have been able to chronicle the changes which are taking place.
Excellent choice of b&w for atmosphere and details.

A beautifully composed and processed shot, which works really well in mono ... as others have said it has a post apocalyptic feel to it. Love the ones in the notes too! :)

great piece of urban decay you caught here, looks wonderful with the overbearing sky and dark tones

Thanks! :) (In real life, it's actually more about urban renewal than decay: the old factory building turned into artist studios, decades of weeds and trash cleared away and old tracks pulled up, to eventually be replaced by a new subway line, with a planned station at the end of the street bringing new businesses to the neighborhood... But it looks so much more post-apocalyptic in contrasty b&w. :D )
