Day 105 (14 April 2012) Fire

Today was a good day; starting off w/ some good manual labor cleaning up the church grounds, followed by a visit from a good friend from The City (as NYC is called around here), and some time roosting marshmallows over a fire.  It was so relaxing just watching the fire burn; I could have fallen asleep in my chair if I wanted to 🙂

This last photo I tried one of the edge effect filters for Lightroom; I think it makes it more interesting to look at, what do you think?
