SOFIE R.I.P.

Some of you will remember my Last Waltz gallery. Reconstruction work on the building was scheduled to start in spring, but nothing like that has happened ever since. After seing Claire Morgan's recent images, I decided to go there again (July 3, 2007).
A few weeks ago, a number of construction containers were placed behind the building and for some time there was a lot of activity appeared to be going on. Than the containers vanished, and it became quiet again. I was curioius what had happened inside, so I climbed over the fence once again (on Nov. 17, 2007). Actually, nothing much had changed. Obviously, they did some tests to examine the condition of the building, because whatever will be constructed in that place, the remaining parts of the current building will have to be included. A few shots of this last visit (with two new lenses) are at the end of this gallery.
