The blacksmith at Silver Dollar City in Branson had a very hot fire going when I was there last week. Add to the mix a shift in wind direction and smoke was pouring into the retail shop, from which people were fleeing like bees from a smoke pot. He quickly closed the door to the shop and waited for the fire to burn down a bit. That's when I captured this picture. I like this photo a lot. The smoke created a surrealness and a small ceiling spotlight added the perfect lighting around his head. I'm especially glad he wore a red shirt that day!
As a different take on the Thematic Photographic theme, blur, the blacksmith is partially obscured by his environment, rather than my photo flub.
There are just a couple more days for this week's theme. Visit Carmi at Written, Inc. to share your blurry photos and to check out other's like a beautiful butterfly that MB posted.
