Pigeons Lose A Roost


I was wandering through central Montana in 2009 when I photographed this huge grain elevator, and then yesterday evening I saw a recent photo of the building showing it half-demolished, taken down carefully but surely, leaving a flock of pigeons to find a new roost and punching another empty hole in the landscape of rural America.

“The past itself, as historical change continues to accelerate, has become the most surreal of subjects—making it possible…to see a new beauty in what is vanishing.” —Susan Sontag
