Dazzle

Took me a while to get this shot, managed it in the end with a burst shot setting and changing to suit a low light setting.

I’ve always loved fireworks and sparklers, the way they transform the night and make it feel magical (and not just because I’ve read the stories of Gandalf’s fireworks and the sparkles at Hogwarts!).
So here’s a little something to dazzle and brighten the week, especially with Guy Fawkes night coming up next weekend : )

Fleeting Gold Moments on a Merry-Go-Round

To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.

– Henri Cartier-Bresson

The word fleeting means a lot of various things to different people. As part of this week’s Weekly Photo challenge, I’m posting a lit-up, colourful merry-go-round, perhaps to symbolise fleeting times spent at a fair, fleeting childhood, or just a fleeting five-minutes on a ride. You pick.
