A few of my favourite things..

Playing with Fire

Clearly a tripod moment, but.. we were doing the relax around the campfire thing.  Sometimes sparklers, and marshmallows, and .. relaxing campfire stuff,  will take precedence over careful photography.

  1. These are so much fun!
    They still look great, even without a tripod.

    I like the blurred out last one.
    Especially that burst of flame at the bottom left…

    We have a festival out here called diwali centred on light, and it includes crackers and sparklers and rockets, etc. Quite fun.

  4. Thanks, all.

    Vimal, our state has outlawed fireworks for the average person. You used to be able to cross the border to NSW and buy them, but not sure if they are still sold there now. Sparklers are about as daring as you can get through mainstream avenues.

    We have a festival called Riverfire (no idea what it’s about – chances are something quite shallow) and the highlight is a dump and burn by an F111. Spectacular enough that we can stay home and still see it from our house.

    😀 That’s the first time I’ve heard of something like that (dump and burn). Saw a clip on You Tube. It does seem like a lot of fire and explosions. Fun…

    Pity that fireworks are banned there though, all though it does seem sensible…

  7. Vimal, I did look for a clip on youtube for you to show you (in case dump and burns were not entertainment in India!) but the two or three I looked at weren’t so helpful. I hope you found a good one! 🙂

    (Oh! and sensible, smensible! I will resist, but I am tempted to give you a big lecture on governments removing all risk, and consequently responsibility, from the general populace. But I’m holding back. Just. 😛 )

    Nivin, thanks! 🙂
