I found this hydrant in a field in our village near the path. I just had to take a photo. It must be something from the dark ages of fire drill I think, the antique in the meadow.
I will never forget this one. It was March 2011 and I had a dentist appointment. As I left the dentist to walk through town everything was closed and the firefighters were at work. The attic in one of our old town houses was on fire and it had spread to the houses next to it. These houses are protected as relics from the earlier days and had been recently renovated. You see even 7 years ago I was walking around with a camera in my bag and naturally shot a few photos. Just to add that since the roofs have long been repaired and you would never notice that there had been a fire.
This is the fire station of Solothurn in Switzerland. We drive past every time we go shopping. Sometimes there is something happening outside and sometimes the doors are closed. I usually take a photo when we drive past if there is anything there. Why is it that fire stations and their apparatus are always in red? Must be international.
