What images does “relic” conjure for you? A well-worn piece of blue beach glass, the faded pencil markings from a high-school journal, or the curmudgeonly character from the CBC television series, The Beachcombers?

This photograph records the demolition of an old grain silo in Cork Docklands.
The Docklands is an area I pass most weekends when visiting family on the other side of the city. I grew up near there. I’m familiar with some of it, so I was motivated to make this record of what the building looked like.
There used to be many old factories nearby, and very tall chimneys, but I had never stopped to photograph them. That was in the back of my mind when I decided to shoot this location. By pure chance, two weeks ago, I wandered down there with my family to photograph the area so I also have some “before shots,” of the grain silo before demolition began.
Share a photo of what “relic” means to you — it could be your still-running 1979 Honda Accord Hatchback, an historic building in your town, or an old, rusted farm implement poking up through the long grass in a field.
