Recovery RoomRecovery Room
When I first saw this portion of the fire station, my first thought was, “looks like all the bunker gear is taking a break”, to which one of the firefighters responded, “Recovering!” lolol…
This is image number two of a small series I did to honor our brave and tireless FireFighters and Emergency Responders. Based on some feedback, I feel I may not be finished with this series yet. More on this next week. For now, I hope you enjoy the image and remember to say thanks, and stay safe out there this weekend! Oh, and have a Happy St Patricks Day everyone!

Equipmnt used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-70 2.8 lens, Induro CT213 tripod, Induro BHD2 ballhead.
** A HUGE thank you to all of my followers, guests, visitors, and commentors! Photography for me is made extra special when I see and hear that my images are appreciated. The input I recieve from my guests and commentors helps to inspire me to look in other directions, and to see things in a different way and light. Then bring those thoughts and ideas to my imagery. So thanks again to each of you!

  2. Oh so great Stan! I can feel the energy of this room – even though there are no people there – you captured the adrenaline-rush spirit of the “fire-fighter” experience in this photo. It conjures up images of what might have gone on there moments ago — or ones that are about to take place on the next shift. As usual — spectacular work!! x RL

    • You are so very good for my soul (and my ego) RL! Thank you, and thanks for the visit!

  3. another great image Stan. The only thing I would possibly look to change would be the window, maybe change the crop to remove it and focus tighter on the equipment?

    • Great observation Chris. I thought similarly about the window and was caught between offering the viewer’s eye a “way out” and still being able to bring in the diagonal lines to the image. That, and a very short amount of working room brought me to this edit first. I do have a similar image without the window…so I will be sure to post it here as version two for the other viewers to ponder as well. Thanks so much for your visit, comments, and creative input. truly appreciated.

    • Your confidence in me is warmly appreciated dear Resa! Thought I am not so sure about my ability at cinematography! Ironically though, I do have to take a couple of “film” courses (as in short films, music videos, etc..) in a few more semesters from now. so, ya may just get to see if I am able to actually become proficient at both still and motion photography. stay tuned!
