The Burning House


I've become kind of addicted to this site, where people post photos of what they'd save first if their house were to burn down. A lot of them are a little hipster-ish (can't people leave their iPhones behind and replace them? heh..) but they are also really lovely images. I might submit my own this week! ~ Image above by Brett Rogowski, below by 6 year-old Brody Tors.

  1. Of course, you would hopefully save your wonderful children and pets! Interesting that no family photo albums are in the pics. Does everyone have this in their computers now? I'm old school and save the old photos in leather bound albums!! I also keep them in a closet by the front door so I can throw them out in the yard if fire occurs!! What a plan, huh?!

  4. I'd grab my phone because I don't know anybody's number off the top of my head and I think I'd need to phone a friend in tears! Other than that, the cat and my camera; the rest I'd just mourn later.

  5. Great site! Love looking at those photos. I have actually been in a fairly big house fire, and I know that the only thing I had time to even think about doing was grabbing my phone to call 999, a duvet to keep me warm as it was the middle of the night and myself!

  6. This is true, i don't think i'd cope well enough to grab anything in reality, besides grabbing hold of tom to keep me calm :)
