Things are going well thanks. How have you been? All has been quiet both in the city and on the Island for me, I guess it's safe to say that I'm currently a "white cloud" (I hate being a "white cloud"). How about you, lots of fires or not so much?
I'll be sure to take a look at the link as you suggested. Tell Frank I said hello and that I'm getting some interest from guys regarding the "Last Chance" device.
Thanks for accepting my firends request. I am a fire fighter and incident photographer over here in England and I am keen to get to know fellow fire fighters across the US with a view to arranging assignments to photograph fire departments.
I look forward to getting to know you better and to hopefully meeting you in person some day.
