This would not be seen in Paris. Explosive shot. Explo Powder, inc. Bronx, N.Y. And you can see that there is nobody around, apart from me of course. Too dangerous, maybe. Probably not. I don't know what this truck was here for. Its presence was mesmerizing. It reminded me of an old French movie from the fifties by Georges Clouzot with Yves Montand and Charles Vanel, Le Salaire de la Peur. Two losers paid to drive a truck full of explosives along a treacherous road in order to put an end to an oil rig fire. Here the environment is surprisingly quiet. The truck is beautifully clean, right in the middle of a big civilized city. The reflecting light from a building on the other side of the street gives an amazing glow to the imposing machine. It was a sort of magnet for photographers and it got me.
