Base to bus
You know I am sneezing loud when the softball players and umpires look at me and say bless you. The wind knocked me for a loop today, hold the camera in one hand, a snot rag in the other. Oh yeah I lead the exciting life on assignment.
Things did pick up a tad when a charter bus burned to the ground on Interstate 580 this afternoon. A bus load of kids heading home to Fresno after a trip to the Bay Area found their road trip detoured when the bus caught fire. No one was injured but the bus was reduced to burned out shell. I managed to grab my shots from the Bird Road overpass across I 580 after I heard the freeway was closed in both directions due to the fire. I gambled and tired Bird Road after I heard the fire was near a gravel company. Sometimes I get a little lucky on assignment.
