Old Firehouses...

Hey Everyone,
Hope your week has been going good. Since I have had a major case of photographers block lately. I decided to take a cue from Haney at Outskirts of Surburbia and go look for old firehouses and post photos of them. Haney takes great photos by the way so If you're looking for a new blog to check out. Go to his blog as I have it linked on my site..
The two photos I took today are of the old Salunga Fire Company(7-12) and the old Landisville Fire Company(7-7). Both departments were just about a mile apart from each other and they have merged to become one department. For some reason, I have no idea why I did not take a photo of the station they are in now. Old age setting in I guess..
Salunga's old station, I am not really sure what it is used for now. The Landisville Station is now a corvette dealership as you can tell.
That is all I have for now, Have a great day!

New Engine...

Hey everyone,
I know two posts in a row!! I am on a roll baby. This is very brief. This was taken on a box assignment the other day. Our tower was dispatched to assist another company on a reported house fire. Fire turned out to be very minor in nature. This is the newest addition to the Mountville Fire Company Fleet. I don't believe it has been in service very long...
That is all..
Have a great day!

Working Fire...

Hey Everyone,
Yes I am still around. Somethings have been going on that have prevented me from doing any kind of shooting(photos that is) and within the past few days, I've been able to get out a little bit.
These photos were taken yesterday, Wyatt and I were out running errands for the boss when I heard on the scanner units being dispatched on a second alarm assignment for a working barn fire. Wyatt and I happened to be on that side of town so we headed that way. First arriving units made a good knock on the bulk of the fire.
I used a new filter that I downloaded for a test run to see if I like it and I used it on these photos. Let me know what you think..
Have a great weekend!
