I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.

    Amazing capture!! Fantastic photography Randy

  • Thanks so much Carol. I don’t think I’ve ever retrieved my camera and shot down the stairs so fast as I did for this fire!

    That’s a keeper! Just a perfect shot! Print and sell copies to all the fire stations!

  • Thanks blacknight, what a great comment. Yes, I’m still pondering what to do with it. I definitely want to get a complimentary print to the company of the guys that responded. These guys risk life and limb on every call. In fact, there was an explosion with this vehicle before the fire department arrived.
