Blown out of proportion – 21.05.07

Admiring buildings in all their glory is one thing, but watching them being blown up is, well, just that little bit more entertaining.

Astragal can think of a few other buildings that should be given a similar treatment. The Thistle Hotel by Tower Bridge perhaps?
