Because of my work in the community, with my background in photography, I was approached to take pictures of the various events after the Martinez house explosion in Firestone, CO. I was in Firestone just after the event had occurred. I took pictures of the smoldering remains of the house, the tributes and flowers over into the fence surrounding the house, the first community town hall which had the Chief of Police, Chief of the Fire Department, and the Mayor. It was heartbreaking. I was there for the funeral, the dedication of the truck, the Heroes Ceremony, the dedication of the baseball fields, and the flag ceremony.
