Let There Be Light
I was watching a TV series, and the episode I was watching had something to do with a pyromaniac. This got me thinking that fire can be such a good subject for photography.
Fire has many connotations. It could resemble the comforting warmth of a fireplace, which automatically makes me think of a room, lit with a brilliant yet calming shade of gold. An armchair, with a coffee table by its side, a half read book left turned over, to continue at another time. A mug of coffee, still steaming.
Another place, another fire, another connotation. Under the stars, on a moonless night, a bonfire and a night full of mischief and fun. A crispy marshmallow, a ghost story. The sharing of experiences and the making of memories.
Another place, another fire, another connotation. A long, endless night, a desk full of books. A cup of coffee, a leaky pen, a doodle on a scrap piece of paper. An oil lantern, almost drained of fuel. A bright little flame, shining away, trying to spread the light as far as possible, trying to increase his knowledge, trying to achieve a goal, no matter what comes in his way. For him, the lack of an air conditioner or light bulb is barely worth a second thought, he just keeps working, day and night.
