At the time I made this photo many of the buildings on the site had already been demolished. The remaining days for the southwest corner, where this building stood, were numbered. On a bright December day, as I stood on a step stool to create a view above the chain link fence, I noticed my own shadow cast across the lawn and projected onto the white washed walls. I manouevered to find a placement for myself within the scene.
