I was lucky enough to work and spin fire there at the Slinky's Beach bar for a few months. It was the best time of my life and not a day goes by that I don't think of those amazing islanders and entertaining the tourists. Out of all my travels, I've never come across where the locals and the foreigners live harmoniously and take care of each other with no reservations. Fantastic photo, William! Cheers!
The photography in this shot is really excellent albiet a very dangerous way of entertainment. Its really amazing what one can learn about the comings and goings in other countries. This is one of the main reasons why I love this site so much. It opens the windows of your eyes let alone your mind.
I seldom use the 'wow' word, but here in this black and gold shot, thats the word that comes to mind. Quite a show put on by this young man for people that surely ' brings them in!'. A really exciting picture, that I enjoyed viewing this morning .j.e.s........
Great use of long exposure to portray an activity. Unique way of capturing the fire show, has made this photo special. Thanks for sharing !!
I hope the person in the photo is protected by some body armor like from NASA if not do not take the gig.
Hey Steve, the steel wool method leaves hundreds of spark streamers coming off the spinning wool, this seems to be a long exposure of fire on a stick, that fire remains on the stick as its spun. Very Cool though!
