Bright and Manycolored

Photographer (and pal) John Welsh has been setting flowers on fire... with some pretty amazing (and amazingly pretty) results. Go see.

Georgia O'Keefe would LOVE these. Are you sure your friend is really a guy? Well, I guess only a guy would think of lighting a flower on fire.

Yep, I am a guy. And you are right, ONLY a guy would do something as ridiculous as this...but it sure beats burning (and then photographing) miniature plastic army men!

And here is an updated link to more images (yes, I am now obsessed with this project) but I need to produce for a fall show...excuse the templated gallery until I can build a proper site.

Burning Flowers

Thanks for posting the photo Rob!
