Four-alarm fire

Most of the vehicles at Old Car City are, well … old cars.  There are some trucks here and in a few cases, specialty vehicles like this old fire engine.  Though there is no squad of men keeping this one polished on a regular basis now, it still demands attention.  The lights that once flashed to get traffic out of the way, are now the one remaining spot of brilliant red.  All else has faded and the rust has started to eat at that once sparkling finish.

Somehow, I can still envision the light coming to life and the sirens blaring out their warning.  I see men pulling on their boots and coats and running to jump on as she roars off to rescue a cat up a tree or extingush a blazing fire.  It is amazing how a few little details can conjure up such vivid pictures!

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
