Someone call 999

By davey_griffo
This was the source of all the smoke. The firecrackers were inside the cage, lit by 2 fellas with full safety gear, who then held it in place with a stick with a hook on the end.

This was the final flurry at the end. The crackers were in long strings, that had a load at the top, presentinf a final, chaotic crescendo.

I was a bit disappointed, as I could see the flames from the crackers through the viewfinder, but all you can see in the photo is smoke. Must have missed it. Or it's burnt out.

Love the fingers in ears in V1. D2 - well he may have the D3s but he's still chimping like the rest of us!

And a ''good'' pro would not check his shots,while there are other photo opportunities about !!
Good shots.

He contrasts quite nicely with the lad in the background with his i-phone.

A tribute to your ability to move through a scene unnoticed. I always attract attention as I lumber around and someone is always looking into the lens wondering why I'm taking their picture.
