I have my heroes and even if these wonderful men and women weren't out rescuing people trapped in automobile wreckage, or putting out a raging fire they're still my idols.
This firetruck with its marvelous crew came around do a routine check of neighborhood fire hydrants. I had my camera in hand, waved to them and asked if it would be alright to take a couple of photos. They waved back, nodded yes and gave me a thumbs up.
My local fire hydrant passed inspections with flying colors. :)
