Tiger Stadium's final days

As promised, here's another image I nabbed when the cranes were taking the final rips at the old Tiger Stadium. This shot shows the roof over the third base line as it crumbles when the cranes swiped away the supporting girders. I took the picture from the pedestrian walkway that takes people over the freeway, which was lined with people holding cameras and video recorders, and holding little kids high up in the air to get a better look at a stadium they likely never set foot in. It was a strange, sad event to watch.
