Caustic Wisp

Love campfires. Hate smelling like smoke.

So how do you scientifically categorize fire? Doesn't seem like it fits as a solid or liquid or a gas. Those are nouns. Fire seems like a verb--a caustic wisp of inbetween when something alive escapes into nothingness, leaving ashes as a memory.

Am I the only one who ponders fire?


  1. Definitely makes me ponder. There is something dream like watching the flames, feel like you could it forever and the crackle reminds you that its alive and so are you.

  2. I have to say the fire is very hypnotic. Nice shot.

  3. I have never taken a photo of fire. That is cool.
    Happy Wordless Friday!

  4. I have always thought that fire is pretty. That's a great photo.

  5. I have tried to take photos of fire but yours is much better. Well done. And yes, I have thought much about fire. Years ago when interactive multimedia was an entirely new concept, a fellow gave a talk that called computers a digital campfire. What an idea! But people do love flickering lights, don't they?
