I have to admit that lately I can't seem to keep up. The days roll around so fast they catch me unprepared. Thankfully, my trusty desktop calendar sends me reminders to help keep me on track. I've just been reminded that it is time for Theme Thursday and this week's topic is fire.
These shots were taken by my grandson at our family reunion last fall. I had just given him a Kodak Easyshare and he was a busy kid. Lets just say that if he had been shooting with a film camera, he would have bankrupted me. I have to congratulate him though because he did get some amazing photographs for his first time out.
I wish that I had time to hunt my archives for some of the campfire scenes I have taken over the decades. As I'm sure you know if you have read some of my posts I have a large family. We gather every year for a weekend reunion and the highlight for everyone is the evening campfires. Of course the night starts with plenty of hot dogs and smores. Then guitars can be heard tuning up and song books come out of hiding. Before long there will be some bongos and a keyboard joining in, and if we are lucky a fiddle or two. Soon voices are belting out the oldies and shouts of "Do you know ______" can be heard.
I must admit there have been years when us old folks moseyed off to bed only to awaken to find the young ones are still going strong as the sun comes up over the dying embers.
