I know many night photographers who seem to be obsessed with structures that may not be around much longer. They're always on the hunt for buildings that are scheduled to be removed. Sometimes a building may not be scheduled for removal, but all outward signs indicate that it won't be around much longer. Other times, we're totally surprised to learn that a building is now gone, and we wish we had photographed it when we had the chance. Sometimes, it may be last building that you ever would have expected to be gone.
