Little Ferry Fire

So for anyone who has visited this photo blog in the past you may have assumed that my photographic interests were limited to photographing churches. While churches do offer one of the best environments for HDR photography, my interests are much more diversified.

Last night I had the scanner on and heard the call go out for an alarm of fire at a pool and sauna business on Rt. 46 in Little Ferry, New Jersey. I decided to grab the camera and check out the action. Arriving on scene it became apparent, very quick, that this was going to grow into a multi-alarm. Arriving as quickly as possible allows you to get a good vantage point before the police and fire start closing down all the local streets.  A very good friend of mine, Mike Coppola, who is an avid fire photographer told me fire was still showing at 2 a.m. If you are into fire photos check out Mike’s web site at http://www.mjcphotography.exposuremanager.com/g/public_safety

Here’s two photos from last night. More are posted on my Flickr site (in the fire photo set) at http://www.flickr.com/photos/wasabi_bob/sets/72157620424147220/

    Hi Bob,

    I love your work. In fact I found a photo you took in Sussex County of a sunflower field. I am a graphic designer and am working on a Annual Report cover for a local bank. Would that photo be available for use with proper photo credits?

    The client may not select that particular concept, but i wanted to check with you.

    Thanks, jimpaquet@yahoo.com
