The Firefighter III – In the Rain

Mainly pictures tonight as I have been busy watching a basketball game.

As you can tell by the title this is the third post in a series. When I am in downtown Tracy I will often take pictures of the firefighter sculpture.

See The Firefighter and The Firefighter II for information about this sculpture.

The Firefighter, Tracy, California, SculptureThe Firefighter sculpture is in a little park by the headquarters of the fire department. This is the first time I have taken pictures of the sculpture after it has rained. This changes the look a little bit as the sculpture is wet and reflects light differently.

The rain makes me think of fire fighters who are battling a forest fire and are helped by a welcome rain storm.

The Firefighter looks tired in this picture, but he seems ready to spring back into action if fire breaks out again.

I am tired as well and must get some sleep.
