Fire Starter by graemestevens

Fire Starter

Given that it's the 5th of November and therefore Guy Fawkes, I am more than happy to offer my services as chief lighter of fuses.
Two things that I should point out - looks best against the black (shock horror) and I don't have photoshop.
Its the look of someone who is determined to burn, burn! Just like Mr Fawkes! Love the selective colour!
November 5th, 2014  
Kick ass. Love the look and the FIRE! Fav!

After you've fixed up the Beehive, would you like directions to Canberra? Oooooo, I'm probably not allowed to say anything like that nowadays or I'll run the risk of being arrested as a you-know-what.

Very cool! I like your jacket.
November 5th, 2014  
Excellent vintage look and feel. Remember, remember...
November 5th, 2014  
Ah yes, not disappointed after the long wait for the "amusing" shot. This is awesome. It also has a "overlord ready to rule the minions" look to it too. Either way, its an awesome shot, I'm going to go and find something that has a fuse in it.......
November 5th, 2014  
Very cool shot!
November 5th, 2014  
Very evil. Don't know how you do it.

What a great vintage look you've achieved. Brilliant idea and execution. Fav
November 5th, 2014  
Very cool! I would hate to run into you in a dark alley - that is some death stare you have going there :) Fav.
November 5th, 2014  
So severe and inflammatory! Very creative... lovely shot.
November 5th, 2014  
With my only heat being a wood stove I could use a good fire lighting skill.

Can you book yourself a flight or just fly over on Reginald's back and start our village bonfire on Saturday night. You look fantastic. Burn baby burn.
November 5th, 2014  
Do you do guy Fawkes night in NZ?
November 5th, 2014  
Hot stuff!
November 5th, 2014  
I have also decided by the committee of one that I am that the success of your photos has nothing to do with your photographic skills, which are excellent, but all to do with your eyebrows and their amazing skills.
November 5th, 2014  
Wow...intense and amazing!.....fav
November 5th, 2014  
@rustymonkey Thank you very much :)
@newbank Ticket booked - and yes, we do Guy Fawkes night over here. My eyebrows are both a blessing and a curse and they seem to have a life of their own...

November 5th, 2014  
@dh Thank you very much indeed - to be honest, it took me ages to get the processing to a point that I was happy with...I nearly gave up!

So... seeing this now - wonderful shot... no photoshop??? Did you hang a burning thing from the ceiling, or just toss it up in the air (as it appears in the shot)? Excellent shot.
February 19th, 2015  
@rosiekerr Thanks very much - I hung it from the eaves of the house and hoped for the best ;)
