When I discovered Wordless Wednesday, the notion that my blog, which focuses on lens and pens, would occasionally go wordless was not necessarily a conflict. For me, photography has always been about its visual language. So here I am with my first submission, and (yes), still creating words.

Note: As always I welcome comments about this post or any part of my blog.

    How much longer did you hold it? How far did you go to get the shot? Enquiring minds want to know 🙂

    • Actually, I was against a pillar for support, and shooting at a few different angels. I did not have my long lens, but the one I had goes to 105 mm. Did not have my tripod. Lighting was just right. Thanks.

    I’m hopeless at wordless Wednesday. I think I may need to reword it to ‘almost wordless Wednesday’. x

    I want to get better at low key photography…I love a stark, black background.

  12. Hmmm… what is Wordless Wednesday? A blog post without words (pictures, art, etc….) Sounds interesting. Where did you find info on this?

  13. I love the tension in this photo… It’s still but as the viewer, I can feel the movement and heat of the flame. Probably because the rest of the image is dark and both the hand and flame are pulling my eye in. I feel tension because I feel like the hand is about to burn! It’s a beautiful and somewhat eerie photo 🙂 great post!
