    Good old Canada, picture taken on a Native Reserve in Northern Ontario.

    Don't worry, no one was in the house at the time.

    i think the content here is really nice . . . with the little girl on the bike and all.

    but in terms of color or aesthetics and such i don't think its that amazing. (for example if i was choosing things to put in a portfolio i wouldn't choose this, but would still turn it in to a newspaper . . . and they would print it probobly)

    thanks for sharing it!

    I'm not particularly fond of the content in the photo myself. The girl seems out of place. She seems to be simply riding by the house, not paying any attention. She brings something different into the photo and doesn't help with the story of a burning house. It definitely gives the feel that the burning house is out of the ordinary, and therefore doesn't help with the newsworthiness.

    Was this a controlled burn (by the fire department or the owner)? I agree that the little girl seems out of place during an emergency situation.

    the girl being out of place is what i like about it.

    there are plenty of striking burning house photos, with crying people fire hoses etc.

    but how many shots are there of children playing in front of burning houses?

    I'm thinking the same as Mike, actually I find it pretty INTRIGUING that there is a blaze in the background and that girl seems so totally unperturbed by the fact. Makes you wonder if a house burns down in that reserve every day, maybe? Really intriguing.

    A bunch of kids had snuck into the house while the owners away, burned it for fun.
    All I had was my friends P&S, but I thought the girl's disinterest was amusing.
