Playing with matches

Okay, I wasn't really playing with matches. But my apartment was chilly when I got home today. I decided to light some candles and then I remembered Linda's glass bottle. First, I had some fun just flicking the candle lighter and I caught this cool shot in aperature mode: Then I used the candle lighter in near darkness to create the shadow from the bottle. I also used an old photo filter and poster edges with a fade. The orange-ish glow is the actual color of the entire photo because of the lighter, but the fade makes it seem like just the bottle is glowing, which I think is really cool. Not spectacular, but I don't have time for spectacular! Meetings, quizzes to grade, all the usual stuff.

You try all sorts of cool things and your images are interesting to look at! I admire your bravery and "vision". Nice job...and don't play with matches, ok?
