HFD

Despite the fact that the clouds in the background look like smoke, there was no fire on this day.  The Honolulu Fire Department was doing a demonstration for some school kids - and I have to say, I never appreciated how high (and skinny!) these ladders are until I saw one up close!  For other sky photos from around the globe, visit Skywatch Friday.

  7. Many years ago I climbed a 200 foot wooden tower, it swayed 2 feet either side at the top, now I wouldn't dare, I get vertigo these days. Great shot of a brave man.

  9. What a lovely blog you have. This is a fine shot....to me a bit scary because of the steepness and the height...but I adore photography which stresses the linear and this one certain does that. It makes me think of my mother when she was young. She would NOT allow me on a ferris wheel because she was on one when it decided to stop running and had to be brought down one of the fire ladders like this. Can you imagine??? Love the shot. genie
