The implosion ran like clock work, 30 minute warning siren right to the final count down and blowdown.
Watching the building going down was quite incredible and a sight to see.
What follows here are my pictures from when we arrived to when we left a now you see it now you don't look into the implosion of the Nedbank Gardens Building.
I'd alos like to the thanks Maureen and her family for including us in their fun today and sharing with us the fun of the implosion. A very special thanks must go to Emma and Mike for allowing us a behind the scenes peak into the site after the implosion and for the uber cool T shirts they gave us.
I've copied the link to the Rosebank Killarney Gazzette's video clip of the implosion at the end of this blog.
|The crowd gathers|
|So wanted to join these guys for the view they had|
|BLOW DOWN !|
|and there she goes!|
|Implosion to perfection.|
|down she goes as the dust rises up|
and the dust rises up
|look down the street to see the dust filling the street|
|the dust moves closer and closer|
|quite eery watching the dust moving towards us.|
|Perfect positioning the dust stopped moving at this point and began to settle|
|as the dust settles the crew start moving back to the site.|
|More crew moving in|
|Crew and moving equipment moving in, the moving equipment can just been seen in the dust cloud.|
|the coolest T shirts.|
|Emma walks back to the site after a successful Blowdown.|
