Parade and a Job..

Hey all,

This past Saturday I took my son to the annual Harrisburg Irish Day Parade in the Capital City. Weather was a little chilly, but overall it was nice.

Later on that evening, I talked to Brad and I came up to the station and visited with him and Brian Bastinell(Of Brian Bastinelli photography) We were sitting in the kitchen talking when we found out about a large fire in Reading PA in a warehouse. Did not think too much of it, was on my way home when a friend called me and told me he was heading up to get photos and he had a friend on the scene still confirming heavy fire. So I decided to go up and this is what I saw..

A 51,000 square foot 3 story vacant furniture warehouse, well off with 2 homes that were attached to it also burned

Few more shots of the fire. Folks, I know times are tough but this is another example of why you do not lay off firemen. Reading's staffing is 2 per rig and thats it. The initial alarm brought 10-12 guys to the scene, 12 guys for a Fully Involved 51,000 square foot building. The FD did a damn good job in keeping the fire from taking anymore homes and possibly, even the block. Yes, Reading did call in outside help but regardless, Firemen should not be laid off. Period..

Off my soapbox now...

Have a great day!

Hey Everyone,

This was a TT accident about 5 minutes up the road from Wyatt's school. This is intersection is not normally known for trucks to flip over like that, but it happened this time... No injuries..

My favorite subject to photograph...

Hey everyone,

This was taken at a place for kids called BOUNCE-U in Annville PA. The place is an old hanger that was converted and has HUGE bounce slides, courses, you name it. Great place to take a kid if you need to wear him down for a nap. Very reasonably priced as well. This was Wyatt's first visit and as you can tell, he loved every minute. I just upgraded to the D3000 for Nikon and was practicing with it here.

Have a great day!
