Naturally we had no such permission to do so, so once we set off the alarm, the owner showed up. He liked the idea so he helped us set up a few cool shots, much more so than we could have done on our own.
I love it when a shoot works out.
I actually fill the frame on portraits all the time, so I wanted to do something a little different. I ended up stopping by the Mt. Oliver Fire Department on my way home the other day and asked if I could take pictures of them cleaning their trucks. Initially I was going to use that as my "newsworthy" photo, but frankly all of them sucked. But I did like this shot and so here it is.
