where was god that night

this is a double-exposure HOLGA shot.

 

In June 2005 there was a massive fire at a historical landmark building in Detroit. It was the Studebaker / Piquette building. It burned all night. I could watch the fire burn from my window which was only about a mile away.

 

This building was sentimental to me. It was the first abandoned building that I ever went inside... thanks to one of my photo-geek friends, Vanessa. This was also one of her favorite buildings.

 

It was an extremely hard fire to put out. So many firefighters risjked their lives to put out the blaze. The irony is- there was a church across the street from it. Where was god that night?
