Ken Gigliotti's photograph of the eight Winnipeg firefighters working the conflagration at 614 Maryland Street (Potential firetraps left unchecked, July 17) last January is an outstanding image of Winnipeg's finest doing their daily job.
The layout and composition of the photo clearly illustrate what these skilled workers do on a daily basis to protect Winnipeg's residents and property. The ladder leading to the smoke-filled window; myriad hoses strewn across the street to and from the pumper unit; firefighters in full gear, with breathing devices to allow them to enter the burning building.
Gigliotti has captured an image of a group of city employees in the performance of their jobs in a most striking manner.
