Hope your having a good week. This photo was taken at the playground on City Island in Harrisburg. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_Island,_PA
Wyatt decided he wanted to play on the playground first before we went into the ballpark to enjoy the game. I think he was looking at Mom when I took the photo.
Have a good day!

This is a photo of the Reily Fire Station #10 located on 4th Street in Harrisburg. It now serves as the State Fire Museum. I would go into the history but I am pressed for time today. I will fill in the history of it at a later time.
Have a great day!

This will be brief. This was taken last night at the Lancaster Barnstormers Opening Night. The Barnstormers played the Newark Bears and won 5 to 2. It was a good night for baseball as last night marked 5 years the Barnstormers have been in existance.
Have a great day!

Just got home from an OT shift so this will be brief. This was taken last Saturday at the Strasburg RR Museum. Wyatt is standing watching the traffic go by on the road past the museum. He had a good time as he usually does when I take him out there. Of course they raised their prices for admission a few bucks. Oh well..
Have a great day!

More from the game. In the first photo, the runner is safe at third. The second photo was about 5 feet from us. A Phillie on the run making a good catch. The third photo is the new scoreboard at the ballpark. The video they are showing is the Senators in their first year of existance winning the championship from 1987(Brad, do you remember that?)
Have a great day folks, time for bed!

Another photo from the ballgame. This is the Reading Phillies at their bullpenn. I had another photo ready for this post today but for some reason, blogger would not allow me to upload it. I'm really not sure why. The photo I wanted to upload, I had processed with the program that Brad Myers recently purchased and just did a few photos on his blog with. So I decided to download the demo and see how I like it. So far I like the program, just wish I could get my photos to upload..
Time for bed.. Have a great day!

Hope you all had a good weekend. This photo was taken yesterday at the Harrisburg Senators game vs the Reading Phillies(Yes I did have to root for the Phils). My wife and son and I decided to head up as we have never been to a Senators game before. Wyatt did pretty good, he made it to the 7th inning before he tired out for the day.
We were over along the 3rd base side. We were actually in the General Admission Seats and then moved over to the box seats(There was not a big crowd) I was watching the Phillies pitcher warm up and thought it would be cool to try and get a shot of him with the ball coming at me so to speak. So I eased my lens through the hole in the fence and waited. I did not have the lens too far through as I was worried about a wild pitch and knowing my luck, would have hit my lens.
So If your ever in the Harrisburg area, take in a Senators ballgame on City Island. Tickets are reasonably priced as is the food. Nice ballpark overall.
Have a good week!!

Yes, today is a special day for me. 5 years ago today, I got to marry the most beautifull woman in the world down in OCHO RIOS Jamaica. I know sometimes I may drive her crazy, but she still lets me do the things I like to do(Photography and Photographing Fires) She's truly a great woman, she gave me a beautifull son and home and I'd be lost in the tall weeds without her.
Happy 5 years babe, I love you!!

Hope your having a good week. This photo is from about 2 weeks ago. FD got dispatched for a reported building fire just right down the street from my new house. This is the Rohrerstown Fire Company, Truck 6-7 setting up to the roof checking for extenstion. The fire was reported in a dust collection system. They did have a small fire but the first in engine company knocked the fire with a water can.
That is all for today, hope you have a great day! I know I am since this is my Friday and I am off the weekend.

Hope your having a good week. These are photos from Easter Sunday of Wyatt in his new outfit before we left for Lisa's Aunts house. I would like to know, which image do you like better?? the original or the one with photoshop. I think I did a little too much on the 2nd image..
What do you think??

I decided to change the post for today after the tragic loss of one of baseball's great announcers. Harry Kalas. I've been a Phillies fan since I was about 6 years old and I'm 35 now. Harry had one of their voices that you will never forget and was a true class act. Listening and watching a Phillies game will simply never be the same again. This photo was taken when I was at a game last yeer on Phillies Alumni Night. Harry the K is standing next to Steve Carlton and Mike Schmidt, 2 of the all time great philly players.
Harry, Thanks for the memories. You will be missed by millions of Phillies fans...

Hope you had a good easter weekend. I had to work and we were quite busy. I did not have a chance to get something ready so this is a photo from a fire scene in Harrisburg City from a few weeks ago. The new Wagon 3 from the famous uptown house supplying water to Tower 2 also from the uptown house. When this photo was taken, the fire was in the overhaul stages meaning it was out and they were doing the investigation and also checking for hotspots.
The back of the ladder truck in the photo is the new Tower 1 but I don't believe they were set up at all during the fire.
Have a good week!!

Hope you all have a good holiday weekend! This photo was taken at Wyatt's 2nd birthday party a few weeks ago. It was the same day that we had severe storms and a tornado hit Lancaster County. This was towards the end when he was opening up his gifts. Someone put the bow on his head and I think he was just sooo tired. His expression almost seems to say "Are we done yet? I want to go to bed!"
See you Monday!

Sorry I did not get a chance to post yesterday. It was just one of those days. This is another photo of Wyatt from our day at the park. He had climbed up the top of the slide and I was hunched down behind one of the curves on the slide with the camera resting on the side where he could not see me. I liked his expression that he had. He stood there for about 30 seconds just looking down, debating on whether he should go or stay...
He went and had fun doing it..
Have a great day!

I know, more fire stuff. I do plan on changing sometime this week as these 2 were the only ones I had ready.
The top photo is Squad 8 and the bottom photo is Towers 2 and 3 from the Harrisburg Fire Department. This was a recent two alarm fire at a church in the uptown district of the city. Companies were in process of overhaul and doing the investigation of the fire. Fire was accidental.
Hope you all have a great week!

Hope you are having a good day. This photo was taken this Sunday at a reported fire at a local school. FD was originally dispatched for an automatic fire alarm at the school. First engine arrived on scene and gained access in the building to find smoke in the hallways and quickly filled out the box. This is Truck 2-4 from the Eden Fire Company. This is the only tiller in Lancaster County. I think this would be a good addition to the fleet in Harrisburg but I don't forsee that happening anytime soon.
Have a great day!!

Hope your having a great day today. Today is my birthday. I am the same age as Brad Myers and that is 29...LOL
This photo was taken at Station 2 on 16th Street In Harrisburg when I was up shooting some things. I saw the Squad sitting out front and pulled over to grab some quick shots. I have to admit, not a real big fan of the candy stripes in the front of the station. But thats just my .02
Have a great day folks!
