This is an example of getting a photo other than the one I had planned. Like many people, I’ve been watching the demolition of the old KDLH-TV and Palladio buildings along Superior Street. Earlier this month my eye was caught by the two skywalks that used to connect to the Palladio Building, now ending in mid-air, and the excavator that was knocking down what remained of the building working on the rubble below. As I tried to capture a compelling shot containing skywalks, excavator, rubble and partly demolished building, I noticed a man and boy on the sidewalk across the street from the job site, watching the project. I quickly changed plans, switched lenses and focused on the pair. As a section of the building collapsed, the boy covered his ears with his hands, and I had the shot, although not the one I had originally envisioned.
