    This one is very old (2005). The theme candles brought this image to mind straight away as I loved this photo. I wish I hadn't searched for it though, too many photo's of Hannah to look through too.

    Lovely picture. I love her expression!

    I know what you mean though. I've found some photo searches on some subjects have been a bit difficult.

    Some of the other shots are blurred due to movement. I'm not sure but I may have asked her to be really still so I could take the photo, hence her intense stare. I shall have to ask her later when I speak to her, although her memory is pretty poor!

    Lit by candles. Two outside and one inside the cupboard.

    That's the third day in a row that I'm out of contributions - the next couple of days don't look too good either.

    I understand that not everyone has a candle in their home but... you could always damage a cup or plate for tomorrow if you don't already have a damaged one ;-).... or cut a potato if you have one
    ... and you don't have any gloves?

    He’s married, so there must be candles, scented or otherwise. Probably a drawer full of tea lights from a visit to IKEA too (They’ll come in handy they say).

    Don’t think so, maybe some birthday ones. Got some fake ones (battery candle-lights). It’s not the availability of candles per se it is the need to create a set-up in the house. I’m not up for the stress.

    Here's an oldie - part of an investigation into type but also...candles.

    I don't how you create a scene like that. Very curious mix of celebration with decease. Love the colours that are ..... contrariwise .... I think sums it up. Emotionally a very confusing picture.

    Hey, Come on! Surely every fuel on this forum knows that "RIP" means: "Really Into Photography"??

    This was part of the development of a project where I was looking at typography and death. For this I was interested in what were considered to be 'appropriate' fonts for announcements, graves etc..and conversely what wouldn't be appropriate.

    The set up for this was very simple - I used two thin plastic cutting mats, one as a base and one propped up against a vase at right angles to the first to create a space to put the cake. Pretty sure I just used window light too.


    Not candles but these were two others in the same series. Hereliesjonsmithcol.jpg
