    I couldn't find a sticky with rules for this forum, so I apologize if this is not the right place for these pictures.

    About a week and a half ago (7 December, to be exact), I was at my fav pub, Nanny O'Briens in Cleveland Park. I brought my camera and was using glasses as a jury-rigged tripod. All of the sudden one of the bartenders come running in from the back screaming for someone to call 911, there was a fire in the alley. Well, it turned out to be 4 or 5 fires in the dumpsters in the alley. Clearly, it was arson.

    I figured that since I had my camera, I would try my hand at this PJ stuff...I'm not really sure how it's different other than the images tell a story. Is that it?

    Anyway, here's what I captured from the fires:
