On a walk last year, we were on a bridge and we saw these great billows of smoke in the distance. Without the zoom on my camera we couldn’t clearly make out what was burning. It turned out to be this boat which was literally ablaze.
I posted the photo on social media and met haters who questioned my morality posting this, accused me of being a gawker and even of obstructing rescue efforts. I had to post the photo below to show how far we were away and I found newspaper articles to show that nobody was hurt.
What do you think? Should I have walked away and not taken any pictures? At the time, I really didn’t think anybody was in danger (and nobody was).
