Is that woman photoshopped in there? Something looks off with her feet.

jayburns: Yeah, looks odd, eh? She's jumping over the fire hose, though her body language doesn't actually look like a jump. I took three photos of her. This is the middle one, which happened to catch the jump. Didn't notice that until I saw it on the computer later.

I've attended a lot of fire scenes as a photographer and it amazes me how people can just stroll right through a dangerous scene like this with total disregard.

That laneway on the left of the photo is the only way in/out of the lanes/parking behind this complex of townhouses, other than walking through a house. I met a woman and her two kids at the bus stop around the corner. She was unable to drive out of that lane. I was also kind of surprised at how lenient the TFS/TPS were about people walking through or standing nearby, though there were some attempts to get people to move further away.

That said...yeah, this shortcut right through some of the action was a bit bold, and why I took the photos. :)
