One of those beautiful spring days that ends up giving you more photographic opportunities that one doesn't expect. My assignment was to shoot the NYC Bike Tour which proved both entertaining and interesting. Then when I arrived home I noticed a large vehicle parked in front of my firehouse that was used for training purposes.
After a tragic event about 7 years ago where some firemen died for not having the necessary ropes to get out of a burning apartment, they now all have rope setups for rappelling out of dangerous areas. They let me photograph their training and I promised to send them my pics.
