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.
