new york

Fire on 47th Street

I was coming home through Times Square after stopping by to see Olli/ejo_muc (after seeing, oddly enough, Burn the Floor with Scott/sirpupnyc) when I saw all these firemen and firetrucks responding to a call. In all my years in NYC I think it's the first time I've ever seen one of their ladder trucks in use. With all the bright lights and reflections on the street my automatic camera decided not to deploy the flash but to keep the shutter open longer, resulting in these interestingly blurred images. One of these days I've really got to RTFM about manual overrides for my camera.
