17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Lifesaving Firefighter

While firefighters were battling a house fire, one came across the family pet; a cat. I was able to capture the firefighter bringing the cat out of the home, that was an inferno a short time ago. The sweet baby struggling to breath it was then passed off to me. I raced over to one of the fire trucks and held an oxygen facemask up to the cat. After several long minutes the sweet baby came around. I then took the kitty to a local vet where the cats care was continued.
