Fire Eater #3

Today I'm not feeling to well, I think I'm finally catching that early season flu. I went out to get some images today for my project for this commission and I wasn't really inspired due to lack of energy.

This is the last image from this series. Sorry to those who haven't enjoyed it, you can't expect to have only great stuff from me all the time (not that these aren't great at all).

Streetphone is back but with a twist this time. I've decided not to use my camera phone anylonger as I'm having problems getting it to connect to my laptop. It's now my Black and White Street photography blog. Check it out

Bro, sorry to hear you ain't feeling too well, sorry. Hope you feel better soon.

I absolutely love this image, the capture, the tilt, the composition, the flames, her face all perfect to me. She looks like a woman one does not want to mess with. Yesterday's shot was really cool as well, will comment on that one later. Should hopefully start a series on Monday, hope you like smile

She is one striking lady, full of purpose and strength, I almost didn't want to read your narrative bro as I'm lovin this shot.

It is that time of the year for all to catch what evers floatin around, hope it doesn't ruin your weekend to much. Be well bro.

The angle works really well here. She looks like some kind of dominatrix! Mummy!

Very Nice Pic. Why You Thinking It's Not So Good? I Do Not Understand. I Just Think You'r Just Not In Very Good Mood. Cheer Up.
Jide Alakija: DUDE!!!! Where have you been?????
Granted I haven't looked at your previous work yet, but this one is quite good. I like the shooting-up perspective and the tilt. It makes her look dangerous!

I think this is my favourite of the three. Hope you get better soon. If it's any consolation, I was planning to go out shooting today but ended being too lazy smile

I like it! One powerful lady. She looks like Edward Scissorhands, except even worse with the bright flames.

I hope you feel better today.

What a stunning photo! Talk about save the best for last...this is the best in the series. At first glance it looks like she has long fingers with fire burning at the ends. Her pose framed in the door way is also daring. For some reason, she reminds me of someone who would be a character in X-men. Keep it coming, Mr A...well done...oh and please get better soon!
wow, great pose and expression
