Firehouse Doors

I love these red doors on the new firehouse. After I’d taken a few photographs, I had a couple of firefighters watching me as I checked out quite a few different angles.

  11. What a wonderful red, known as ‘post box red’ here in the UK.
    I’m surprised the fire-fighters didn’t pose for you 😉 They have that reputation!
    I’m some what haunted by a shot I never got to take, I can still see it in my minds eye: I called at our local fire-station for a meeting (they were fund-raising for a charity I’m involved with)but they had all gone out on a ‘shout’, a call out; as our local station is ‘retained’ not full time all the crew had come running from work, home or leisure; all their shoes, work boots, trainers even slippers, were lying on the floor under the hooks from where they had grabbed their uniforms…….. it made a fascinating snapshot.
