Vaguely Analogous

Here are a few more macroesque shots of dead things resisting falling over in the daily rain. In other news, I just decided I want to do macro shots of cheese solely for the purpose of being able to call it “Macro-ni and cheese.”
And on that note, onto the pictures.

Free Time in a Fire House

A couple of weeks ago I was working on a job doing fireman training videos in a fire house. About half way through the day we had about a half hour to kill between shots because we got ahead of schedule and the talent for the next set hadn’t shown’t up yet.

Also, for those who aren’t familiar with fire houses or haven’t had the chance to badger firemen with questions, that pipe that runs up the center of the shot connects the truck exhaust into a ventilation system so that they can run the engines inside without becoming in fumigated . It sit’s on a slide track so it doesn’t have to be manually removed when the truck heads out, it just pops of at the pressure of the truck pulling out.
