Fire Station #2, Cardiff-by-the-Sea

We’re expecting the first Santa Ana of the season this weekend which made me think of this fire station by Domus Studio and of the firemen who work there. I needed to go back for one last shot at dawn and when I arrived a couple of the guys were up to greet me with the lights on and everything ready to go. While we were talking I found out that they’d gotten a call late the night before and hadn’t gotten back until almost 3:00 a.m. but they didn’t seem bothered by that in the least and couldn’t have been more pleasant or helpful. It takes a special kind of person to be a fireman.
