Today on my way back home I noticed some fire trucks parked behind a building in Salmiya. I decided to go see if there was a photo opportunity and turns out there was. While I was taking pictures a guy in local clothing (Dishdashe) came up to me and asked me what I was shooting. I told him (in Arabic) that I was shooting the fire trucks. He asked me where I was from and I told him I was from Lebanon. He then told me if I couldn't get a decent shot from where I was standing I could get closer to the trucks and shoot from there. I thanked him and went and took more shots from a closer perspective. On my way out he told me if this wasn't enough I would be more then welcome to pass by the fire station and take pictures there. I asked him if it was possible to tag a long for a day taking pictures, he told me yeah that wouldn't be a problem and to pass by whenever I wanted to. He then got into a red fire department nissan and left. Once the weather cools down a bit I am going to take a day off work and hang out with the fire fighters for a day. That should turn out to be very fucking cool.
