Within the past hour, there was a fire on downtown Chicago’s infamous Block 37. I had just left photoblogger-boyfriend Devyn down at Central Camera to shop, while I came back up to D.’s place to plotz. As I walked in the door, I saw smoke billowing out of the half-finished high-rise directly across Washington Street from D.’s ninth-floor windows.
I pulled out one of Devyn’s cameras and became photoblogger for a few minutes (until he came home and got to work himself). Here’s some of what I saw while the fire fighters were working to strike the blaze.
