Does not looks good at all...
I know. The people there said the owner probably set it to get insurance money. And, he was fighting with Preservationists who wanted to save it because it was historical. Some old couples were there and crying because they went on dates there before they were married. I felt bad because the day before, I was photographing thousands of birds that lived there. Thanks, Reynald!
A real pity...
Good, dramatic picture, makes my heart sink...
Especially after having seen your other one with the birds, first.
I like the people on it, I almost can feel their shock.
I was there later and saw the ruins, but it was moving enough too.
Thanks for sharing the moment
Yes, I felt very bad for those thousands of birds. Thanks for looking.
Its been 40 years since I have been back to my home town Brighton. So shocked to see this, with memories fishing there with freinds coming back now. What a tragedy.
The shots very well composed and so dramatic with the crowd.
Thanks, Stephen. I took a lot of them but I on;y posted a couple. The saddest part was talking to older couples on the beach with tears in their eyes. I spoke to them, and two different couples told me they got engaged in there. It was the spot for hot dates in the 30's I guess!
It is a pity that burns.
