I happened to be two blocks away right after it happened. (link/photo from my photo blog)

According to various sources, this building was abandoned for about 20 years, and will soon be torn down (within the week, if not today).

We made it across. In one piece and not in the water!
After descending the stairs on E. E street, we found our treasure: a derelict warehouse with a front yard full of all sorts of goodies.
The problem: there were dozens of oil trucks passing on D street and giving us nasty looks.
Her was when I switched over from a 200mm lens to a 28mm for two reasons; depth-of-field and becoming seen pointing a black, 9" long cylinder at things.

vision206 said he had a plan in the works to come down to Tacoma and meet with me to take some photos. Ultimately I couldn't reach him, unfortunately! (Another time, my friend, another time!)
Instead, taracor and I decided it might be nice to have lunch downtown today. As we walked down Pacific Avenue, we suddenly found ourselves in the middle of a peace demonstration in front of the courthouse--great way to get some PJ shots in (I was glad I had my D1x and telephoto zoom!)
Our real adventure begins at S. 11th and A streets.

cross if you dareCollapse )
I fixed the links by the way! I fell asleep earlier...

Anyone got any info on it?

I ran into some peculiar folks who encouraged me to jump the fence at the site of The Commencement Condos to photograph it. Whoo!
(the story is over at my photo-blog, emerald_images)

I'll get some photos up soon, though I am not sure if it can be classified as abandoned.
