One of the things I try to do when taking photos is to get a different perspective. Perched atop the Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) vehicle I snapped this photo of water spraying from the roof turret.
As an amateur photographer I like the benefit of a DSLR camera with not having the expense of buying and developing film. I can take several photos then delete the ones I don't want. This allows me to play around and experiment with angles, focus, lighting and other aspects without added expense beyond the camera. Sometimes I get lucky like this photo.
