Cedar Fire,Julian, California - 2003

The Cedar Fire, in San Diego, took many lives and burned tens of thousands of acres. Not only did it impact my family, but their neighbors and neighborhood.

This is one of the last photos I took with my Minolta X7a. It was cold, rainy, and I don’t remember what settings were used, but that’s not important. I haven’t touched this up, brightened anything or made shadows darker, etc. It was important for me to leave this photo as is.

Faith lost or gained?
