Destruction for status

Neighbors Jay Lemak, 10, (left) and Jordan Lee, 9, (right) watch a bucket loader destroy a historic home in Highland Park in 2002. The home was demolished by its new owners to make room for a larger, more expensive home in the upscale township. Many town residents are calling for tougher ordinances to stop this practice.

Nice framing! Just curious, are you freelancing at all right now?

I'm freelancing. I'm working harder on a full-time job rather than the freelance market.

I like the story this photo tells...not the specific or obvious one about the documentation of the house being destroyed, but rather the one about the boys being interested in the activity. Great shot.

It stopped the boys from their great butterfly safari (note the net).
