Candle, Candle, In the Night

Somehow, Mr. Murphy of Murphy's Law fame always finds me just when I think life will be a -bit- more settled...

One of the things he sent along last week was a blackout that lasted about an hour in weather that could easily steam wrinkles out a shirt, humidity-wise. Not that the heat was far behind either.

So I decided to be productive, as I've been artistically -barren- for a few weeks and that always puts me in a bad, bad mood. Or at least as productive as weather a fish wouldn't feel out of place in would allow. And that's the thumbnail below:


Lamps

We had a candle on the glass table outside; the reflection was too good to pass up. Now if only I could remember my exposures from film class...

Nice. I can feel the movement of the flame up and down, right and left.

("steam wrinkles out of a shirt?" you are funny!)

We're steamy here in Chicago this week, too -- my sympathies. At least I have fresh-grown tomatoes to console me; I'd send you some, but I doubt they'd get there in edible shape. :->
