Today I wrap up my series of shots by the Civic Arena, at least for this week! I really everyone sticking with me through these posts because, like I said a few days back, I really only get one shot at capturing the Arena in its current state and I want to document it the best I can. The shot above is one of my favorites that I took, which is a view through the covering over the chain link fence that surrounds the Igloo. In the foreground you can see the remnants of the building, strewn about in mangled piles of steel.
This view is of the bottom of the arena, taken from across the street. I tried ti get closer to the fence, but even with my tripod fully extended, I wasn’t able to see over the fence. On the sign in front, you can make out the faded words “Mellon Arena”, which the building was called for the last few years of its use.
Finally, we have one more view from the top parking lot looking down on the whole area. With the empty parking lots, it looks pretty barren and a little eerie.
Thanks for swing by today everyone. See you all tomorrow!
