Building go "BOOM" and then fall.

There it is, the old Key Bank building falling down. I got up around 5 this morning, so I could get the brain working and get to my spot by 6:30. I was more interested in the cloud of dust over the city that it would cause than the actual falling of the building (I'm sure you can see the whole thing on YouTube by now) so I went up into the avenues to take my pictures. Another benefit : it was just me and 2 other people there - I didn't have to fight any crowds like I would have down closer. Anyway, at 6:35 I hear this little popping sound, start taking my rapid-shot photos and watch the building fall. Took a whole 3 seconds or so. But I stuck around for about 15 minutes watching this huge cloud of dust rise over downtown and blow itself all the way over to, and past, the capitol building. Here is a couple of my pictures, you'll be surprised to know that I'll have a whole bunch more for ya. When I get the gallery together I'll get a link here.

Wow. Thanks for the pictures. I have absolutely no intention of getting up at that time in the morning until Monday, when it's rise and shine at 4:30 AM for the rest of the school year.
