Hey everyone,
Photos taken yesterday at a reported building fire at a feed mill in the village of Rheems. Police Department arrived with a working fire in a feedbin with 5 tons of grain product involved. The fire department arrived with just smoldering product in the bin. The incident was placed under control just as I arrived, but I stuck around and shot some scene photos.

Armed Forces Continued..

Hey Everyone,

Here are some more photos from the event I went to in Carlisle and the one in Lancaster. When I was at the event in Lancaster, I started chatting with one of the reenactors about the event and I asked him what got him interested in doing it. He said "I have friends who serve and I do this in tribute to them. The most important reason that I do this, is so people never forget."

I think that pretty well sums it up. Next time you see a veteran, please say thanks.

Have a great day!

On watch...

Hey Everyone,

This is a photo I took on Sunday at a WWII Re enactment held at the Lancaster Historical Society just west of Lancaster City. It is like the Army Heritage Days at Carlisle but on a smaller scale. It was my first visit to it and was pretty impressed overall.

That is all I have. Have a great day!

Armed Services Day 2010..

Hey Everyone,
This past Saturday I travelled to Carlise for the annual Army Heritage Days and to do some shooting with Brad and Shane Myers which is always a pleasure. Weather was good which is always a plus. The top photo is a member of the 82nd airborne(Brad correct me If I am wrong) coming in for a landing. The second photo is a snipers nest in a trench that you could walk through, that was pretty cool.
Of course, I save the best for last. The bottom photo is none other then Brad Myers himself, lining up to take another great photograph of solders getting inspected.
Brad, always a great time my friend. I would like to set up a date with you sometime and go out to Ship and photograph their rigs sometime.
I am sure Brad will have photos on his blog that he took on Saturday, so please make sure you visit!
Have a great day!

Vintage and Modern....

Fire Apparatus that is. If I had a place to store it, I would own this mack from Rothsville. For a 1959, it is in great shape.
Kinzer Fire Company Engine 4-5-2, I believe it is a 2007 Pierce all wheel drive engine

The cutest little boy in the world. Yes I'm biased...

Another one of my favorite macks. The Lampeter Fire Company Engine 5-4-3, a 1969 CF Mack. This engine did service with a fire company in Delaware County, however for the life of me I cannot remember who it was. This engine used to be white at one time.
Hope all have been well. Stay Safe!
