Day 76 (16 March 2012) This Little Light Of Mine

Fire.  I love it.  Am I a pyro?  Maybe?  I do enjoy starting fires (not arson, think campfires & bonfires), burning things, watching flames, experimenting with burning different materials to see what color they burned.  Maybe this is what pushed me into joining the local volunteer fire company (had to quit due to change in job 😦  ).  The live burn training was amazing!  Until you’ve been in a 600°F room watching the smoke ignite because of the intense heat, you’ve not lived! LOL

So, anyway, back to my photos.  I shot a medium-sized candle, some of the shots with a 10x macro filter.  Hope you enjoy!
