Fight fire with fire: Firefighters protest in Barcelona, Spain / by Jessica Lee

One of my photography mentors once told me to always bring my DSLR with me wherever I went. Boy am I glad I listened to his advice.

On my way to a coffee shop in Barcelona today, I stumbled into a firefighters protest. The whole square was filled with firefighters who made a bonfire and even threw firecrackers into the fire as the day went by.

It wasn't quite a riot, but I got close enough to the heat to feel the rush of adrenaline excitement.

The firefighters were really nice to me, but of course, these are people who would risk their lives to save the lives of others- so I suppose that was to be expected.

I hope their issues get resolved soon.
