It was also great to get out with someone that appreciates Holyoke the way I and a few of my friends do. Holyoke really does have a lot to offer people. The only problem is, people arent aware of it just yet. There are a few big changes facing Holyoke and I am happy as well as anxious to see them take place. I made a few photos while out on our walk. I will be posting them later as well as a few others from the past month.

While out shooting the aftermath, the building ignited and began to burn for a second day. There was also a police officer stationed at the scene. He did a great job of keeping the people out of the building. Which to my surprise, they kept trying to go in as bricks were falling to the sidewalk. He even had to place a man inside his cruiser as he awaited a second car to come pick him up. It was a very sad sight to watch as the Fire Department was arriving to once again fight to put out the fire. Below are some more photographs that captured the fires destruction and reappearance.
