Up In Smoke

from 69.00

I don't know what caused it, but the futility of a family's attempts to save their home is evidenced by the small fire extinguisher still sitting on the front steps of this house. For a time, I passed this burnt out shell every day as I drove home from work. One day, when the clouds were dramatically back lit in the sky, I decided to stop and photograph it. This photo reminds me that when a fire destroys a home, if we survive, we lose our shelter, material belongings, mementos and sometimes even our pets. What many fail to realize is that we also tragically lose our sense of place - that experience of place and self that gets embodied through the act of dwelling.
