Photo-finish Friday: LAFD

Recently on a side street in Los Angeles, I looked up to see this gathering of firefighters on the roof of an apartment building. There were two mobile units on the ground, one of them with a ladder extending to the roof, so I'm guessing that's how they got up there.

It was an animated discussion, with apparent differences of opinion that went on and on. But I couldn't hear a word. Another firefighter was on the street impatiently pacing back and forth. If he'd looked more approachable, I would have had the temerity to ask what was going on. So all I have is this curious photo, and no story that goes with it. You get to make up your own.

PFF is the great idea of shutterbug, Leah J. Utas.


  1. Ron, that does get the creative juices flowing. Thanks.
    Happy New Year.

  2. Being an ex-firefighter, there could have been all sorts happening, even a game of "hide and seek" and the irritated one on the street was keepin lookout. HA!!

    Happy New Year, Ron, to you and your family!!

  3. Love the bright light and deep shadow. Nice work, Ron.

  4. They were probably discussing when to break for lunch.

    Happy New Year, Ron!

  5. " So?....You said you had got the sun cream!"

  6. "Im going to throw you off rthe roof if you ain't goin' to cook for this shift!"
