Photo Hunt Week 9: Flame

Flame on!

I’m terribly late again this week. Though I do have a somewhat legitimate excuse this time. Aside from work and the usual bits that occupy my time… I’ve gotten terribly ill the past few days. I was doing good recovering from my last bout of flu related illness, when this second wave has pretty much shut me down again.

But it can’t keep me from this blog forever. Sickness, away! I have a photo hunt to do, after all.

This week brings a subject close to my heart. Flame. I’m a bit of a pyromaniac… though possibly not quite as much as my close friend, Vicky. The lantern pictured in this shot is an old family heirloom that I inherited when my folks moved away a few years ago now. It was always something I was fascinated with as a kid, because of that whole brass “shiny” factor, and, well, it produced really gorgeous flames when the power went out. It’s one of the few things I’m glad I’ve been able to hold on to… a little happier slice of my childhood.

Be sure to check out Vicky’s very cool picture of smoldering goodness.

And Nic has joined the ranks as well! Her quite sexy photo can be found here.
