    Talk about confidence that the building was going to fall right on top of itself, they left a couple hundred thousand dollars worth of heavy equipment right next to the building during the demo.

    Actually I was on land, but I had to hold my camera way over my head to get above everyone. Thus the shaky hands. I had a tripod set up, but a tall man decided to stand directly in front of it.

    I don't think boats were supposed to be there, but what were the cops going to do, arrest everyone? There were literally hundreds of them.

    Thanks for the compliments!

    Damnit... I was just down there for work too. I swear I miss all the good stuff...

    Would love to see a building implode sometime looks like it'd be an awesome sight.

    Sometimes I like to say, "you can't see that from your living room couch"


    That must have been a lot of fun to capture, nice job with both stills and video, thanks for the treat.

    actually it's not video, it's an animation from all the stills I got!


    thanks!

    Very nice capture and great job with the animation. Kudos to your lady for being there with you on V-Day. Boo to the tall a$$ to decided to stand in front of someone with a tripod.
