Baltazar Ray, a resident of New York City--is an author, architect, and a photographer. Through his street photography series, he was inspired to create the FancyCrazyHydrants concept. This concept covers photographs, digital art works, graphic images in various media, and written words with the sole subject--the fire hydrant.
The Adventures of the FancyCrazyHydrants (FCH) is a sci-fi children's book series written for Young Readers aged 9 to 12. It is a group of crime fighting super fire hydrants that became alive at the turn of the Third Millennium--as programmed by a scientist 100 years before they were timed to become alive. These fire hydrants have tremendous super powers in which they use WATER as their main source of power--to fly, roll, and run at great speed and outdo their enemies. The Adventures of the FancyCrazyHydrants is full of action packed stories and elements about the future.
