Environmental portraiture

This is just a quick post to reminisce about an image taken during my youth … an early effort at environmental portraiture on a fire scene. I thought this guy exhibited a lot of character in the way he carried himself. The old hip boots, rubber coat, cotton gloves … it was a different time.
