This is one of the five static images for a project that I had originally created to enterº in a digital arts competition after a suggestion by my dear friend Cathy. I have chosen to title this creation Conflagration: A Life of Fire.
Fire spinning, as regular followers of this blog will know, is one of my favourite things. I first started spinning fire some years back after seeing a group of people spinning at a beach. My purpose for starting spinning was that I wanted to make images of spinning fire. Now, for me, spinning fire is an end in itself. Sometimes I will go to the beach (or another isolated location where the fire spinning is unlikely to create a bigger fire) and spin to make images for photographist purposes. Other times, I will do said spinning just for the fire.
It’s a beautiful thing, spinning fire. I know from experience that it can be beautiful to watch from a distance. I also know from experience that it is beautiful to watch being the person spinning fire. The purpose of this creation was to create an environment where a person who doesn’t usually spin fire can enjoy the site and sound from the viewpoint of the fire spinner.
I hope this creation does that for you.

ºDue to incompetence of the the organisers of this competition, I have de-submitted my entry. Rather than ruin the elegance of this post, I have created a page to describe the events that led me to withdraw from the competition. You can find that page here.
