Old Fire hydrant

A picture I took recently when the fires were burning all around Port Elizabeth. I was on a dirt road in Fairview and found this old fire hydrant marker in the grass next to the road with the fire in the background. Thought is was a bit of an ironic sight.

  1. Ironic, yes! But special. Would make a nice "Beware of starting a fire" ad! I quite like it!

  3. ironic and eerily beautiful. Fire and smoke are so fascinating...maybe it's the danger.

  8. Gifted - well done Jonker. So many of us walk by these photo opportunities and cannot see the symbolism or effect of an otherwise obscure object. Your mind appears to be programmed to look for these contrasts.

  9. That's an amazing picture.

    I have been playing catch up -- again -- and I loved the photo of the dead man's tongue. :-)
