Schmotograph Of The Week

I haven't published a Schmotograph of the week for quite a while, but I must admit, the subject matter of this shot makes this one a real winner in my mind.

Fire so ugly, you could beat it with a stick!

Actually, I think he was using the bar to bust apart some of the wood to get it away from the fire. This was actually an exposure to a much larger fire which was a hundred feet away. Local FD called a second on this, one of the second alarm engines jumped on this before it could do much damage.

I just thought the sight of someone beating the fire with a stick was unusual and I felt lucky to capture it.

Hope you all are having a great weekend.

Thanks for reading,


  1. Captain Schmoe, I like this photo--especially the way the fire came out, like a nasty little dragon.

  2. Wayne - Well, the pipe wielding man was definitely a motivated dragon slayer! Thanks for the comment.

  3. Great photo as always Capt. Schmoe! thanks for sharing! I missed these while I was away!
