Among many other roles he has in the family circus,
he is the flame thrower…

Exposing for flames is always challenging for me. You did it.

   I find extra interest in your choices for the first portrait. Special. Love it

Thank you guys!

Not really!
As it can be seen, in the last take, some areas of the flames are
over-exposed. There is a limit to the number of repeats that can
be performed safely so I had no other chances that day.
Since I don't have much experience with flame throwers…
