This is one of the times when carrying your camera around with you really paid off. I was having a walk with my 4-year old daughter one evening when we noticed huge smoke raising from a nearby location. We quickly went closer and witnessed a huge fire. Some old storage houses were apparently set to fire by some extremist group. The buildings were fortunately empty, so no casualties. The fire created nice reflections on the glass walls of nearby buildings.
I did also my educational part: I told that usually, in case of fire, one needs to run AWAY, but when with daddy AND daddy has a camera AND daddy is supposed to take a grabber each week, it is allowed to run towards the fire.
