A captain oversees two firefighters at work extinguishing an automobile blaze a block from my home in Maricopa, AZ. As soon as my wife told me about it, I grabbed my camera and shot out. My inspiration was I had never shot afire attack before and I wanted to get as many varied shots as possible. This opportunity with three fire men lasted only a few seconds and was the standout shot of the shoot. The car exploded at one point and shot shrapnel my direction but I was unharmed. It was an exciting experience to be long remembered.
