Stairway to heaven

I remember seeing this staircase leading up to nothing when they were still building the new Joensuu fire station. At the time I thought some structures would be built around it, but alas, it is just a staircase leading up – to nothing.

So much hose

I remember when I was still a junior explorer myself, sometime much too long ago. Even a single hose seemed so long and heavy to handle. And it’s surprising how a test can cause running and hurrying even when the kids are told that there is no time limit to the task.

Running

Another shot from the junior explorers’ testing day.

It’s a big world

A week ago (the next day after shooting Tarot…) I went out to shoot some junior explorers (young kids learning fire fighting) completing their first test in skills and knowledge. I was there to shoot the event for use in some articles on the event and as a trainer.

While shooting some typically journalistic shots of the event (which was fun), I also had some time to get some shots that aren’t really usable for typical journalistic purposes, but can be used otherwise. I’ll be publishing a few of them here.

Oops – sorry

Sometimes shooting from the audience can be slightly dangerous with people partying – and head-banging – away. In this case I luckily survived without any visible marks :) The camera and my eyebrow just got a bit of a knock.
