    well... Say it loudly I'm crazy... I noticed a smoke from my windows... grabbed my camera, my dad with his press pass and his video cam and jumped into the car. We drove 5 minutes and collected a great set of pics and film... which my dad sold to tv... to his work actually... And well... thanks to his pass we were able to follow the firemen... into the flames...

    PS.
    and now... nobody will tell me that DSLR is better than a compact camera... I have an eqiv of 37-370 mm.. so no need to change lenses in such situation :p:p:p

    These are so good Mentos. I always thinking about chasing the fire engine when I hear it, but it is usually late at night and I'm already in my night clothes.

    By the way, I love your gallery of photos on your website. There is some really great stuff in there.

    Mentos great shots. Equipment and uniforms look a lot different in Poland than the states.

    Aoide, it's OK to chase but 90% of what we do is medical stuff. At least where I work. Does not make great photos.

    A lot of fire departments have a ride along program. Check them out and see if they will let you tag along with your camera. Bonus is that we are good cooks also.

    Wow, that was a very interesting series. Not often one gets to see 'up close' what the firemen do. Way to go, Mentos!
