    Escaping the Heat in Brooklyn


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Photographer ryanscherb says he was getting ready for a bike ride in Brooklyn when he saw the dazzling droplets of water rushing out of a fire hydrant near his home. When he first got to the scene there were a few children playing in the water. The position of the sun and the beauty of the scene compelled him to grab his camera. 'It seemed like a really nice moment that doesn't happen very often,' he says. 'When you take documentary photos you put yourself in the position that things can happen and sometimes they do and sometimes they don't,' he says. 'The sun going down and coming through the water was just amazing to see.'
