Life on the line.. by straightfromcamera Life on the line.. by straightfromcamera
One of the first frames made on my first trip to Seattle. The bus in the background was moving along, it was almost an afterthought, as I read what the advertisement said through the finder.

Prints available - 8x10 (2inch border) - $40
(signed on back - edition of 25)
Please send note for more info!

Many thanks to everyone who viewed this photo, and to the incredibly talented Street CV, Mary, who honors me with a DD!

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-08-12
Life on the line.. by `straightfromcamera 'When a life is on the line, you want the best medical care possible'. The writing on the bus in background becomes a subtitle for the scene in foreground. A decisive moment captured here. ( Featured by myraincheck )

I don't think I've ever laughed so much and long about a Street picture (and I've seen a few funny, ironic, hilarious, baffling etc. ones). Congratulations with your DD!

Yeah.. one of them was almost us, but they hit someone else instead. I felt bad for the guy, his car was destroyed, and he most likely had internal injury

Particularly poignant today when a bus driver was shot downtown, likely along this same street.

It's one of those perfect coincidences. And it looks like that medic is aware of what just happened. That had to be surreal for her!

Which proves she's an excellent medic, because I'm pretty sure I would've gotten distracted by that sign. (Best to leave me in the library, I think. :XD:)

When life hits you with irony, make sure you have a camera on hand. Wish I had my camera on me when stuff like this happens to me. Nice shot BTW ;-).

Very nice photo.

I used to work as a Paramedic with that same company AMR here in San Antonio, Texas before I became a Firefighter.

Worked with a lot of great people.
