The Smoke Thickens...
The existance of these photos was a complete accident; I've been cooped up at home for over a week due to car problems, and I finally made it out to run some errands. I decided to have a leisurely lunch/dinner at a nearby park, and as I was leaving the house, I decided on a whim to grab my camera.
As luck would have it, one of the largest fires the area has seen for a long time started two blocks away as I was finishing my meal. So, I was able to capture the heroic work of the Harrisonburg Fire Department as the event unfolded.
And lastly, the final image I took of this event. At this point, something particularly nasty must've started burning in the aforementioned flaming pile, because it began putting off pure black smoke, and lots of it. I thought about sticking around longer, but I had other things to do, and I was running out of photo ideas.
