From the other side of the world, Megan Goodmundson drew my attention to this photo taken the night of a house fire at 2031 Queen Ave. N.
Recently, Megan was flipping through her computer and came across this photo. Neither of us realized what an eerie, compelling image we had captured of the dedication of these Minneapolis Fire Department personnel. (To get a bigger view of the image, click on the image)
Due to the fact we repeatedly swapped Megan's camera back and forth that night, neither of us can be sure who took the picture.
In Minneapolis, firemen not only fight fires but board buildings, perform some of the multi-unit housing inspections, water newly-planted trees, act as medical first responders and, above and beyond all that, the Northside fire station on Lowry and Morgan has a "green roof."
Megan tells me if any of the firefighters in the photo would like an actual glossy copy of this photo, she can take care of that...she just needs their names and contact info.
We know folks at City Hall read this blog so hint hint.
