This is one of my daughter's friends during a recent tour they got of our local Firev Department.

The expressions on the face of this fireman and the young girl are what makes this picture for me.

    Matt, I have to say that this is the most inspirational image that I've seen in quite a while. It is such a positive image for young girls and it really exemplifies the heroism of the firefighter. Also, the composition is spot on. WOW. If I could favourite this photo 1000 times, I would!
