Shooting in the dark
Khalima : Carnival of 5 fires 2014
A fellow photographer had been asking me to check out the fire burner’s for a while and finally in 2011, I attended and been attempting to shoot in little to no light with enjoyment! This year the fire show was canceled by weather.
Deepa De Jour : Carnival of 5 fires 2015
soligor 70-222mm f3.5
a higher quality lens product line with the label “C / D” (probably computer design).
I had retired this thrift store lens because I wasn’t getting the bird shots I wanted with it but the extra low f-stop worked well here. Not as sharp as my nikon but a great old school softness. The Khalima photo was with my vintage nikon zoom at f4.5 which struggled in the G5 light.
In their words : “Be warned: you will encounter fire performance and pyro play, burlesque beauties, bellydance shimmies, circus celebrations, sideshow situations, tarot laying truth tellers, live music of many sizes and sounds, puppet pageantry, DJs demanding you dance and so much more.”

We came out from eating a fish taco on Cary Street and were overwhelmed with love, what a wonderful beast (Papillion)!
