I used to be a avid photographer. Slacked off several years ago due to space issues. (Sold my house out from under me and moved into a motor home while I tried to find a place to live).


Slowly been getting back into it. I got the chance to photograph a house fire. This was on purpose! Local Volunteer Fire Department has been burning and putting it out for training. Monday night they decided to finish it off. I didn't know it ahead of time and just happened to step out. I didn't have time to load film or anything so just used my digital Sony. This link will take you 6 of the best ones I took.

Great pics. I’m glad it was a training fire. I can’t wait until A&M fire traing gets here. So I can play in the big fires.

Jeff,


Nice pictures. It is just like being there.
Of course when you are there and you are one of the firefighters the adrenalin rush is absolutely unbelievable!!!!!!
Especially if you get to go into the building and it is on fire all around you.
Sure takes your mind off of everything else!

I get that way with my photography. I have to watch myself as I get focused on the photo and not really watching where I am standing. I block out a lot of what is going on around me.

I stay clear of the firemen and the fire but twice I realized I was standing in the road without realizing it. Of course the few cars that came by were crawling by.

Thanks to everyone for the compliments. I thought they turned out good too. I have one I didn't post as wall paper on my computer. The detail in the flames is just amazing!

Jeff,


We have a picture on our wall at the fire hall that you would love.
It is of a fire but off to the side and quite plainly visible on it's own is a depiction of the Devil etched in flame.
It is the coolest picture I have ever seen. I know it came from one of the fire related sites but I have not found it on any yet.
I think one of my Captains has it so I will try and get it and post it for all to see.
