"Building collapses in the city-center of Rio"

photo of the week 81
[50mm f/6.3 1/400s ISO 400]

A week and a half ago a 20 storey building collapsed in the centre of Rio de Janeiro behind the city theatre. In its fall it took down two smaller buildings. By now the rubble has been cleared out and 17 bodies were found. The cause is still unknown.

Above on the right one sees the left side of the Theatro Municipal with behind it a brick wall of the neighbouring building that remained standing. The building that collapsed took part of it with it and lay bare the buildings structure. If you look closely to the photo next to it you can even see inside the stairwell. The last photograph shows fellow citizens watching in silence.

Until the next Photo of the Week.
