Long story behind this one. A week ago or so, my boyfriend and I woke up about 2 o'clock in the middle of the night - the fire alarm of our apartment-building was howling. We ran out of our door, and could immediately smell the smoke. Darn, not an exercise or an accidental false alarm this time... When we got down on the street (we live on the second floor), the first of the fire brigade trucks had already parked, and fire men ran up the stairs. We didn't see any flames though - the firemen got the fire under control pretty fast. Luckily it was only a couple of sofas and some stuff on an outdoor terrace (the terraces are inside the building, but simply have the wall towards the backyard missing) on the floor above our apartment that got burned.
It was a little scary, and it still is - the terrace haven't been cleaned yet, and everything out there is totally black, burned or melted. The photo is of one of two lamps that were melted by the heat of the fire. On the night, the light in those two lamps (after the fire had been extinguished) looked really creepy, but I haven't been able to get a photo of it because the bulbs died. The lamp looks cool during the day too though.
I hope you like it - I actually see this photo as much as art as many as my other photos, it's just a very different form of photography than what I usually do
I would really like to hear what you think about the photo Whoa, thank you so much for my first DD!
