Chino Fire Station 61

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 18mm ISO 200 1/2000 f/11 Lr4, TpzSim; PsCS5

Chino Valley Independent Fire District, Station 61 on Schaefer Avenue in Chino, California.  Their training facility occupies architecturally similar buildings adjacent, just out of frame on the right side (I’m working on a pano of the entire complex to share in the future).  The geometry and then the colors make this image for me.  I like the horizontal lines, the strong vertical lines of the light standard and the flag pole, and the strong diagonal line from the curb in the left foreground.  I also like the repetition of the square and rectangular shapes.

Engine 61 Responding

Engine 61 pulls out of its bay at Station 61 of the Chino Valley Independent Fire District on Schaefer Avenue in Chino, California.  Engine 61 is a paramedic fire company that consists of a captain, an engineer and  two firefighter/paramedics.  In many cases the captain and the engineer are also licensed paramedics.  After having Chino Valley Fire District personnel respond to my calls for help on more than one occasion, I can tell you these men are the real deal, skilled, strong, professional and heroic.
