This was another image that was left on the cutting room floor  when I was editing my book “Introuvable“.  Although this image didn’t make it in the book 5 other pictures  from this same night did make it in.   I remember this night well  it was  rain after a rain and it was still misty and foggy out.  I had walked from my apartment to the plaza  hotel.  The door man didn’t seem to like that i was photographing the front door  and I quickly moved on down broadway  towards time square.  As I walked down the side walk  I was just looking around  and looked up to see a pillar of smoke  coming from a  window about 20+ stories up  on a large building. before I had walked even a block further the sounds of sirens could be heard and soon the strobe like flash of emergency vehicles  could be seen down the street.   I looked up at the smoke as I got to the block the building was on,  it was too far away and too dark for  a picture to be of any interest  but I did stay and just watch as the fire men arrived and stormed in the building.   I soon departed onward to time square.  time square its self was rather dull  and I  decided   to head in the general direction of home.

Stopping on the corner of 42nd street I took this picture  looking back at the empire state building.  I like this picture  I think it would look nice matted and framed on some ones wall  but in the flow of the book the picture didn’t seem to have a strong enough focus in it, your eye wonder around  the frame.  While I was  taking this picture though I looked down the street o the east and saw the Chrysler building with the same soft glow and walking in that direction I found a hand full of other pictures that were great additions to the collection
