The hallway was dimly lit by emergency lights. I braved the nine flights down but information was scarce, a transformer fire. I was in and out all day, embracing the challenge. As the day wore on the emergencys dimmed to nothing. The last time back in I felt my way up the steps, to my door and through my keys in profound darkness. I got my flashlight and camera and decided to back out just after eight o'clock to take pictures of the darkened windows at dusk. Following my flashlight down the stairs the lights suddenly came up, freezing me.
