..."It was late at night and I was drunk. At first I laughed, and then I thought, Mother of God, what a wonderful idea. I called Hinckle at about three in the morning and said, look, don't ask me why, but this is very important"...

This was a fire in NE Portland, which consumed the Bai Yok Thai Restaurant, and an insurance and chiropractic building. I only had my cell phone with me but I captured it as best I could. Although I am sorry that these people lost their businesses and possessions I was struck by what a visually stunning fire this developed into. All scenes had such dramatic lighting...I rarely post this many pictures of a single event, butnthis one was an exceptional event.
