a photo story

*none of these are signed.  there was no fire. not sure what was happening. wished I had a zoom lens on the iPhone.


  1. You might find out by googling the details. Cool series of shots though.

  2. Irresistibly drawn to firefighters, Daryl?

  3. great series of photos! Living with a family of firefighters (both paid and volunteer) it looks like they might just be staging and making sure the ladder does what it is supposed to do...just a guess though:)

  4. Great photo series! I love the colors and patterns in the first one.

  5. as a typical NYer my first thought was - oh, that's gonna screw up traffic
    and my 2nd thought was firemen are yummy

    I'm thinking they were checking out a facade to make sure it was sound
    that used to happen a lot in my old neighborhood in Brooklyn on the older buildings

  6. What the heck were they looking up at???

  7. I was just about to write what Akelamalu said. Or maybe they're just making people look up...

  8. Curious. I take it there weren't any movie cameras around, so that would rule out a film shoot. Hmmmmmmm.

  9. What scares me is the word "SCHOOL" painted on the street in front of the building...

  10. Great series, Daryl!
    I especially like the first one.
    Sending you wishes for a wonderful weekend!

  11. there is not enough money in the world to make me go up that ladder..

  12. un tres bon photo reportage, tres bien construit

    Merci d'avoir participer au challenge "Walk In The Street Photography"

  13. Great series! I really love the first photo. :)

  14. It is a great series of shots Daryl, but what the heck were they doing!!! Maybe just a practice drill!

  15. Really cool series. Glad there was no fire. I wonder if it was practice (as others suggested).
