Posing on a fire truck

I was on the road today and was photographing a fire truck for a calendar. We were setup in front of a commercial building and getting everything ready for the shot, when someone came out of the office and asked if they could have their picture taken on the fire truck. Well, that’s not an uncommon request. After all, parents are always bringing their children by the fire trucks when they’re out and accessible, tourists often stop for a photo when I’ve got a truck setup in a public space, and there’s the occasional bride and groom posing on a fire truck if given the chance.

This one caught us a little off guard this morning but made us all smile nonetheless … take a look at what we had …
