Default On the street I live

Here are a couple of shots from my neck of the woods in California.

Love the deer in the middle of suburbia. And the fire retardant is certainly colorful. Have you noticed how so many of us Californians have posted pictures of smoke and aircraft working our common brush fires? One of the many hazards of living in California.

I live right across the street from the hills and a few months ago, a family of Deer passed by on the sidewalk. Unfortunately I did not have any camera with me at that moment. Good capture.

Wow, Bill... great 'capture' shots - both of them

That fire retardant is such a bright red... amazing. I've never seen a shot like this (I don't think we use the same in Australia).

The deer are so lovely! I remember seeing wild deer in Romania and in Scotland when I lived in Europe. They are so 'cute' (hmmm.. Bambi)

Thanks for sharing!

Paul

Hi,

Thanks Paul, they add a strong dye to it so they can tell where they have dumped on the next run. Mtngal yep we do have our share of fires. Tullio I got lucky on this shot. They were just at the end of the drive one evening and posed for me.

Cheers,
Bill

Wow, that shot of the water-bomber is awesome! We get our share of fires here too, the last really big one was back in '03 when a big forest fire came within about 20 kilometers of town. There was another massive fire to the south of us that destroyed an entire subdivision in Kelowna. That was a scary summer, I'll tell you.

Cute deer pic. Lots of deer here too, but they only come out when they know I don't have my camera with me.
