Texas drought and wildfires

Big Picture, as always, shares some stunning pictures of a natural disaster.  This time Texas drought and wildfires are in focus.  When looking at these images, I can’t stop thinking of people who, instead of running, trying to save their lives, stopped for a moment, set their cameras, framed the image and pressed the shutter button.  I haven’t been in anything even remotely as dangerous as these situations, but even that was enough for me to know that I am not built for journalistic photography.  And I can’t even start to imagine what all those people who’s homes and businesses were in the path of fires feel like.
