Photo 90 out of 365 – “Fire on Houston & A”

I was working on some stuff at home last night when I got a call from my from my friend (and downstairs neighbor) Rob saying there was a crazy huge fire on Houston and Avenue A.  He’s so cute – he knew I’d want to take pictures.  So I dropped what I was doing, grabbed my old camera (the EOS 20D) and my cell phone cam and bolted out the door to go catch up with the action.  By the time I got there (just a few minutes later), the firefighters had the blaze pretty under control – though I’ve never seen so many firetrucks!  All of Houston was closed off and there were spectators EVERYWHERE – most of them toting cameras!  It’s amazing how many photographers there are in the East Village.  Here are a couple more shots I took from the scene:

And of course... our friendly neighborhood drunk guy made an appearance

Here is the story from the New York Times.

Seriously – firefighters are CRAZY!  And awesome and brave.
