Deconstructing the Memorial | Counterweights

The deconstruction of the Memorial Bridge continues as the weather improves, with the massive counterweights as the next step in the process.  This was taken on Friday after the process of cutting the counterweights into four pieces had begun, with the first piece already gone, and the remaining 3 chunks from this tower gone as of Monday morning.  The red crane against the rich blue sky and the industrial grit of the bridge are just lovely.  Can you notice the dent on one of the pieces of the abutment from the counterweight that fell?
