Stir it up – Flames

Practice fire safety – watch what you heat.  ~Author Unknown

Yesterday’s post featured the “ghost fire” from the fire pit in our friends backyard.  Today I would like to show you the original image so that you can compare and decide which one you like better or if they both stand alone equally well. 

The flames are still dancing as in the B&W photo but they just don’t have that same “other worldly” effect.  I will say that every time I open up one of these fire images I suddenly feel warm and want to put my hands out.  I like this other image below because it shows sparks.  Our host was putting in some more logs and was poking about with the one piece of wood you see on the left.  As he was doing this a bunch of sparks arose and skittered about in the wind.  Really cool to see especially since it was so dark!  I wonder how this one would look in B&W?  Maybe I will play around with it later.

    Gee I can’t decide…I like the B&W because it’s different and I like the color because as Bulldog said it shows the heat.

    I agree with you, Teri. The B&W is far more out-worldly but the color photos do show warmth — or maybe I’m projecting again. EIther way, it was a great exercise. 🙂
