The Columbus Fire Museum offers a view of the rich fire fighting history and Columbus, OH. Among the numerous tableaus, I found this pressure gauge from one of the earliest fire pumper “truck” (this was actually a wagon) in use for fighting fires.

Gear Used:

I immediately noticed the engraved face of this gauge and wanted to capture that on film. Wanting very little of the background to register, I elected to use a wide open aperture in this image.
