I don't normally intentionally shoot people, but I thought this shot was too much to pass. I was at the Newport Beach pier today and some firefighters had their engine parked up near the pier. (That's not a normal spot for any vehicle to park) So I wandered over to see what they were doing. They were showing off the engine to a bunch of kids and handing out some little red firefighter helmets to them. They walked over to a corn dog for a short break and a quick drink.
Like I said, I don't normally take shots of people, so it was a little awkward for me to walk up and ask them. But it was pretty fun too to see how each reacted. The firefighter on the right was indifferent. The engineer in the center sort of stiffened up and posed a little. And the Captain, on the left, kept asking me who I was and why did I want his picture.
I printed out a copy for each of them and dropped it off at the station a few hours after taking it. I thought it would be cool to give them a shot of "work", but something different than the normal firefighter shots you see. I'd love to hear what they are saying about this picture.
