Rags from Plano, United States

the men seem so tired and discouraged. The fire on the other hand seems to stand there taunting and laughing at the men.

Bravo Isabelle !

For security reasons, I can not be too close.

Thank you for your comment Walt!
This photo was taken during a fire in a barn.
One of my hobbies is to take photographs of fires for Granby firefighters.
So if there is a fire in Granby you could very well see me with my camera.

Very nice work...truly a story in this photo.

Isabelle from Canada

Cette photo a été prise lors d'un feu de grange. Une de mes passions est de prendre des photos de feu pour les pompiers de Granby. Alors s'il y a un feu à Granby vous risquez de me voir caméra a la main. :)

3 Nov 2007 4:17pm

Isabelle from Canada

c'était chaud, mais j'étais quand même assez loin. Question de sécurité je ne peux pas trop m'approcher.
