Radio Network House implosion

August 5, 2012

This morning at 8am the Radio Network House was imploded by Controlled Demolition Inc. This was New Zealand’s first ever building implosion. A big crowd turned up to watch the spectacle (even though we’d been advised to stay at home!). It was certainly impressive, but over so quickly it was hard to take it all in (especially when you are behind a camera). I’d had my camera on sports mode, but switched back to test things, and then boom! So I started shooting as didn’t have even a split-second to spare to switch back to sports mode. Fortunately I got some shots I was happy with.
