    What an interesting photograph. Very mysterious and intriguing. Was it a bonfire? I hope no-one was hurt.

    This is an interesting photo. Is it a double exposure, or slow aperture? Happy GTS!

    Sounds like a good thing on cool nights like these.

    ? so, what’s going on?

    I can see you had the same problems that I did trying to photograph fire in the dark. Too bad you live too far away from me to share a tripod or I’d suggest going halves! Looks like a party at your house.

    Sara, yes, it was an eeny-teeny bonfire, and no one got hurt. All good!

    Aiyana, slow aperture, but purposefully slow. And a synchro flash that always creates weird effects.

    Curtis, it was perfect for that cool night!

    Joyce, it was a party at my house.

    Heather, I had the camera braced on a table, but yeah, a tripod would have been, well, helpful. Still, I do like the weird ghost effects!

    This is your midwestern redneck headline of the week!

    That is an awesome photo!
