Waiting for the engine and get well wishes for an old friend

Hey Everyone,

Hope your weekend was good. This was taken  from Engine 45 and Ladder 14's firehouse in Philly. The Engine just went out on a medical run when we arrived. Standing in the back of the house, I thought it would be cool to take the shot. I think it turned out ok with post processing but I think I could have done better.

Now for the get well wishes..

A great friend of mine who is a Captain with Lancaster City Bureau Of Fire, was seriously injured this past Friday when he fell off the turntable off of Lancaster City Truck 2. He suffered 8 broken ribs, fractured a thoracic vertebre, bruised a kidney and had a lung collapse. He initially did not remember the accident. I went right to the Hospital Friday night after his wife called me and told me it was him, he was starting to remember what happened and I stopped in to see him Saturday night and he was doing a little better. Still in  alot of pain though(8 broken ribs I can imagine..)

So to my buddy Kenny Barton, Get well soon brother and hope to hear you riding the truck again soon!

Have a great day folks!
