I doubt it will be as long a theme as Splash was, but it seems that I’ve made enough Flame images that they’ve earned a theme of their own. I have another one or two in mind before I move on.
Tonight’s image was inspired by an interesting factoid I picked up in my younger, dumber days. Namely that some alcoholic drinks burn quite nicely without doing any damage to the glass (or anything else coated with the alcohol.) That’s probably enough said about that!
So I set out tonight with the only shot glass in the house, a bottle of vodka which has been sitting around since my wedding fifteen years ago (had to find a use for it somehow!), and a handy fire extinguisher. The results are below:
As usual with these shoots I made far more images than I ever post. The big one asked me to post a second today though, as she’s convinced that this image looks like a howling wolf of flame sitting on top of the glass.
And a word of warning if you try this at home, we did have a casualty in today’s shoot. Sadly the shot glass did not survive. While it came through the burning alcohol with flying colors, during cleanup I forgot that hot glass + cold water = bad news.
Alas poor shot glass, we hardly knew ye!
