Day 11, Oct. 26. Previously a place of much noise and destruction, the demolition site was cleared and quiet on the evening of the last day.



Day 9, Oct. 24. By the eighth day, most of the building had been demolished.



Day 1, Oct. 16. Photographs of 219 Vassar St. were taken over a week and a half period to showcase the gradual changes that took place during its demolition.



Day 5, Oct. 20. Morning clouds roll over the demolition site.



219 Vassar St. lies halfway demolished at the end of October. This photograph, as well as the others in the photo essay on page 7, were created by merging at least two photographs of different exposure levels into a single image in a process called high dynamic range (HDR) imaging. When done subtly, the resulting image oftentimes more closely resembles human visual perception than a regular, single-exposure photograph.



Day 2, Oct. 17. This photo highlights the range of an HDR image. By combining three different exposures into a single image, all levels of detail, from the brightness of the setting sun and to the shadows inside the demolished building, were retained.
