The Ferrier Estate, 2009

I took these in 2009, shortly before the estate was demolished. They were lost when Flickr clamped down on image storage, but copies have been floating around the internet since, so I thought I would upload the whole set here.

Many of the buildings gave the feeling of a post-apocalyptic video game environment – trees growing in through missing window panes, shredded curtains flapping in the elements. But in other places you could see signs of the residents who had so far refused, or been unable, to vacate.

The Wikipedia entry on the estate is here.
