Your superb portraits are causing me to stop and think more carefully about the hot, sweaty, wet and miserably hard and difficult work these firefighters perform !!

FOr a long time now, I have understood why these men and women think so much of you and well they should. Your images of them are gripping and so illustrative of the hard work and life that they have! Fantastic job as always, Ralph...your images are always a privelage to view and ponder!

Your clarity is great; the close-in portrait is outstanding. You can almost smell the smoke. Nice work, Ralph!
