35W Collapse – The Day After

August 3, 2007

I went down the see if I could get some shots of the bridge collapse the day after it happened. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get anywhere near it, but I did find a spot where all of the media was gathered.

I hung out for an hour or so and decided to take photos of the media and the Minneapolis police that were keeping things under control.

There was one spot where I could get a view of the bridge with my 200mm lens and one of the news guys brought me up so I could take a couple photos. I guess the big, white Canon lens made me look official. I also met a photographer from Getty Images who was there with a 600mm lens.
