Playing with fire!

By franken
I went to Cardiff bay yesterday and if all went well I was going to nip back to the city centre to see if there was anything of interest and this chap was definitely interesting and more will follow.

The bay was also interesting and a few from there will also follow.

The lighting and exposure was difficult as he was in the shade. I had one chance to take this unless I hung around for half an hour and I really didn't want to.

Perfectly timed, Ken. He looks as if he is holding the bar in the air by some invisible force, and not about to catch it. The droplet of flame under the main blaze is a bonus detail.

Must say Ken this is up there with your best captures, the exposure and clarity is awesome, I hope this gets the recognition it deserves.


The timing and detail are outstanding, this is very good work indeed.

The detail and colour in the flames are amazing, Ken, and the whole image is so well timed. Excellent street photography of a street performer.
