Playing with fire

Fired up the charcoal grill for dinner today and as I was watching the flames burn I liked the contrast against the open lid of the grill. Not wanting to simply shoot the flames against the black background, I opened the circular vent on the grill lid and used that as another element in the photo. It doesn’t make sense but I like it in an abstract way. I used continuous drive on the camera to catch the flames in various forms and I liked this one the best.

      I don’t know why but I can endlessly stare at flames, even when they’re not moving 🙂

        I feel the same way…possibly a caveman?!
