Uploaded: December 20, 2005


F8@1/60 52mm. I just happen to be close by when I noticed smoke. So I wandered over and was able to capture some photos of a house on fire.it was later determined it was arson by the owner. This was in Calgary, Alberta

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
