Today a friend of mine sent me an picture of what used to be a McDonald's restaurant. We had somtimes had coffe and icecream there. Now it was just a heap of smoking rubble. It seemed so strange. Something that used to be something, now had become next to nothing. I thought that I turn it back into something again, so I packed my camera bag and jumped into the car to document the devastation.

It actually looked worse than I had expected, but because of that it just became a challange to turn it into something else. Several under cover cops turned up and started to ask me questions. I was aparantly a person of interest. Well, they got bored of me and left me alone to do my work.
I was lucky, the house across the street had an emergency stair up to the third floor. I used it to get the overview of the whole scene. And as a bonus, I got to catch the last few seconds of the setting sun as well. I'm pretty satisfied with the result. Enjoy!
