Subject to the scope of the exhibition and the limitation of time, the author had to change his plans and stay in Ohio for another day. This introduced an impromptu. He later learnt that the flight that would otherwise have taken him inbound from Minneapolis collided in midair over Staten Island with another aircraft (Frampton 49).
The reading introduces the only survivor of the crash, a ten-year-old boy who fell two miles into the streets of Brooklyn (Frampton 49). The author presents the aspect of photography by introducing a newspaper photograph of the survivor, which depicted a broken child, surrounded by ambulance attendants and police, lying on the pavement in front of the Pillar of Fire (Frampton 49). The author related that photograph and the impromptus with Edward Weston where he was wondering just like that many photographers whether Weston tried to kill him or save his life. He claims that many photographers over the past thirty or forty years encountered the same feeling (Frampton 49).

Saints relate with artists and saints are of interest to everyone who seeks to join sainthood while Heresiarchs are chiefly of interest to other heresiarchs (Frampton 50).
