Digital Photography: Bugout Complete

Digital Photography Fire OneHey, wanna see some cool video?  Click this link.

It’s Channel 13’s KRQE news video of the fire.  I’ve grabbed a hotel in Santa Fe for a couple nights to see what’s going to come of the fire.

The best pictures I got I shot on Sunday night, but today I’m exhausted.  I’ve just thrown three of the pix in.  It was a pretty impressive wildfire.

The mandatory evacuation just started today at about 2:00pm Mountain.  There really wasn’t much in the way of photo opportunity this afternoon, if you’ve ever been inside a lit cigarette when the smoker inhaled, that was about the extent of the visibility and the comfort of the thick, sooty air.

On the plus side…  It looks like a couple days off work…  And, it’s the first time I’ve ever been run out of town by folks who weren’t carrying tar, feathers or a rail…

Sonia, I now know what it means to have to be that selective in the books you want to take with you.

Have a great day, y’all.  Enjoy.

  2. Hopefully they’ll get this contained before any more damage happens. Great pictures!

  3. Wow….I feel REALLY bad for saying glibly “what books would you take if your house was on fire”….didn’t think for a minute anyone would have to face that choice so soon!

    Well, if your house DOES burn down, buy that Kindle and come to Costa Rica. I know you could make a living as a photographer as the flora and fauna there are just begging to be immortalized by you!
    And I have a spare bedroom you can use while you get settled!

  4. Oh man…
    Great imagery albeit tragic.

  5. Hi Dewayne,

    Getting hotel room so you take better closer photos is so like it for a great photographer like you are.

    Happy Dating and Relationships,

  7. Glad you’re safely out of the way of the fire.
    I really feel for you having to leave your home so quickly. I’ve had to do that before and it was not something I’d care to do again.

    Hoping the weather helps the firefighters contain this thing.

  8. Oh devastating for nature and for the people and animals that live there… It’s strange to say that the images are beautiful, like a boreal landscape…
