Without change, something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken. – Frank Herbert
I’m amazed we’re already five weeks into this year and already into our second month. Yes, time has started getting faster and faster and faster. I can’t keep up! So please excuse my one-day late “what is it?!?” mystery picture post. Life got the better of me yesterday, but today is already a better day. So with that said, here is your fifth “what is it?!?” mystery picture of the year. Do you know? Can you tell?
What Is It?!?
What Was That?!? – Last Week’s Picture (Week 4/52)
Sarah started off the short guessing game. “Sparks?” Well, ding ding ding! From what though? “Now that’s the bit I don’t know! Bedtime here so I shall think on it overnight and come up with some wild guesses. Great image!” Jude guessed, “Sparks from a barbecue?” Kind of, although we weren’t cooking anything. Then Marilyn wrapped it up, “Looks like the trails of a sparkler when it’s moving, or the embers popping from a campfire. I have some pictures of campfires in the teepee that look just like that.” Embers popping from the fire would be correct! I was experimenting with a slow shutter speed and was fascinated by the flying streaks of embers. Too cool! Or should I say too hot? LOL
So yes, what you saw were the embers/sparks from an outside fire. We occasionally have to have those here in Florida. ha ha (At this time last week it was below freezing. Today? I’m wearing a tee-shirt. Go figure.)
