Day 105 – Rubble

rubble left of the QEII hospital Welwyn Garden city

“Here a tower shining bright
Once stood gleaming in the night
Where now
There’s just the rubble in the hole”
~ Shame MacGowan

One upon a time this was my local hospital. After lots of fighting the battle to save it was lost and a near by town was rewarded with becoming the central hub of hospital services in our area. It is a long sad story of government under funding and local politics but the result is that what was once a busy hospital as been replaced with a small clinic style building and the rest of the sight is being cleared to make way for new housing from which some developer is going to make a lot of money

    I work in construction (as an engineer) and sometimes destruction is part of construction. I never enjoy seeing things I like go away and more often than not, these days, feel like they are replaced with things I do not like 🙁

    Such a sad sight – but an excellent black and white composition.

    Definitely a monochrome shot – suits the news as well as the shot
