Crisfield Fire, January 21, 2012

Crisfield Fire, January 21, 2012
I never enjoyed covering tragedies for newspapers, and I have had to cover many in my career. Last week, I took photos of an oil tanker truck that had exploded. Thankfully, no one was badly injured. 


Yes, I am still retired, but I don't mind helping out our local paper if I am in town. Read full coverage in Jan 25 edition of Crisfield-Somerset County Times.


Thankfully, no one was hurt. I always think of the people involved in tragedies such as this when I shoot, and in this case, the firefighters who were quick to contain this fire, a fire that could have taken down many homes.

 




























 




 












What it's like to watch your home burn is something no one can imagine except those who watch their lives go up in smoke. My thoughts go out to the family.

So sorry about your loss.

I have received a lot of emails from people who not only do not know me personally, but do not know the owners of the house. They want the owners to know they are in their prayers.

Thank you. I know the family appreciates the support from afar.

I'm sure that you have been told this countless times, but you are a wonderful photographer.
These images that you captured tell stories in and of themselves...the last one pulls at my heartstrings.
