    John – Very sad. It certainly is reminiscent of the bush fires here last year in Victoria. The poignancy is the contrast between what the man holds in possession (a tea kettle and a ceramic cat) against the burned out car and house with chimney still standing. There seems to be a forlorn look of resignation about him but his clothes and stance suggest “rugged individualist mountain man” type. Nice moment but once again, sad to see.
