2.1.08 Captive

I could watch fire all day. I visited a friend of mine today, and she had a lovely fire going in this beautiful, old standing fireplace. Fire dances and moves like it wants to leap from the thing which is holding it aflame. I imagine it is trying to escape its tether when it licks the air and moves with the updraft. Fire is always changing, always different. Such a fascinating subject to observe. I took around ten clicks while trying to capture just the right shape.


  1. Ooo, that looks so cool!

  2. Thanks! Is that you, Twinkie? ;o) I envy your fireplace. We have one, but it's old and dirty and blocked by toys. LOL
