Jeff - City of Durham Engine #2

Raleigh, NC

 

Explored: Sep. 26th 2008 #3

 

I shot this because I am starting on a series of photographs of people who serve us everyday and risk their lives for our safety and security. Without these people, this country, and most others, would be in total chaos. Jeff is one of so many people who leave home everyday without his wife and daughter to help serve others.

 

Over sometime, I have heard people discuss such great people and they wonder why they do what they do. Leaving a family behind and risk their lives. The comment that really got me started on this project was when a lady said, "Why would someone be so selfish to leave his family at home while he goes out to serve other families and people? Shouldn't people like that stay home and serve their own?"
