Saturday Snapshot ~ September 8


Saturday Snapshot is a weekly meme hosted by At Home With Books


I took this picture at our city's summer street art fair.  This woman is a member of the Detroit Fire Guild, and she moved in a poetic explosion of color, light, movement, and fire.  I like this photo, as messy as it is, because it is like looking through a kaleidoscope.

  1. Did you add any special effects to the photo, or is that just from the movement of the lady? Either way it's very dramatic!

    1. Thanks! It is a combination of the lighting and not using a flash, her fast movements, and the settings I had my camera set to. :)
