A Prayer For Thanks by velveteagle

I was going through some captures that I made while a house was burning so very hard. This Fireman I captured after the fire had been subdued was kneeling down and had his eyes closed. After looking over the many captures again I noticed the bright light on his visor. So I decided to make the reflection dance a bit more. Also to explain . I think he was giving a prayer and thanks that no one was hurt. The roof which had two and three Fireman on it to open a vent did not know that the entire roof from underneath was burning thin and had become so weak. My friend Josh who went up inside the house to the second floor with a water hose to put out the flames could have been killed if the roof had fallen.. I think there was an angel holding up the roof.. It was a burnt skeleton of a roof when he was done.
