Some Nice Oldies

Here are another couple of oldies. i shot these back in late 1970's, again some
good old Tri-X. There had been a late-night fire in Macon's old industrial area.
Can't remember what the business was that burned.

Anyway, the fire was over but the editors still wanted art for the Macon News(our old afternoon paper.) I got to the scene while the sun was still fairly low in the sky and first shot the vertical shot with the water tank reflecting in the water that had puddled while firefighters were battling the blaze. Fire hoses are still seen in this one, the sun burning through the smoke.

i moved deeper into the scene and found the dramatically leaning roof and rubble. made for an eerie image. Glad I found these.
