    1. They were pretty impressive and knew where the blankets were in case they had to put out a fire, or a juggler.

  4. After going through about 5 minutes being chapta, it bumped me off, so this is my second try:) You captured these fire jugglers excellently! Also love their clothing. Can't remember having seen fire jugglers except for in a circus. Many thanks for sharing these crazy ones for All Seasons! Have a wild and crazy week:):)

    1. Captcha stinks and the best way to fix it is to enable cookies in your browser preferences. I also read that product or accessory updates can trigger a Captcha problem. This is why some people have an issue with Captcha and others don't on the same site. It's in the hands of the visitor, not the administrator. I had lots of problems sun getting these photos, was too far away and didn't figure out how to focus on the juggler and the fire being juggled. They call it "Fire Spinning."

  5. ...Jerry Lee is a legend. I just saw the Million Dollar Quartet, dang music was great back them. Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you again.

    1. Thanks Tom I didn't know it was a musical and forgot about the session. I just found the session on YouTube. Yeeeha. Wow, worthy of a musical and it's still touring.

  6. The last two pictures nailed it I think! I love street entertainers (or park, it looks like where this pair is performing). Thanks for throwing in Jerry Lee for us oldsters... the first reference and video of that cartoon just makes me feel ancient and unhip...oh wait, that actually describes me perfectly. But I didn't used to be ...maybe )))

    1. I was pretty frustrated with all of these, but am determined to find ways to improve on this type of double movement photo from a distance. It was a park where a Fire Fest was going on. Lots of pottery and crafts and demos. That's funny, I thought referencing B&B made me look old. I wouldn't call Beavis and Butthead hip by any stretch, especially the newer ones.

  7. I love watching street entertainers. Have you ever been to Mallory Square in Key West? Every night when the sun goes down people gather and street entertainers do their thing. it's amazing!

    1. I've only been to Miami, Daytona Beach and Orlando. It sounds like a happening place, would love to see it.

  8. Those fire spinners are impressive. So are your photos! I'm grateful to Beavis and Butthead for giving us Daria.

    1. Yeah, I like her too, her show had some staying power on MTV, wonder if it's on Netflix. They were quite cool yet hard to shoot.

  9. No disrespect intended, but that's just CRAZY! But you got some great photos of "crazy"!

    1. There were three of them and one was always standing by to put out anyone bursting into flames. Thanks, it was a hot and sweaty ordeal so I'm going to get some photo tips before I try again.

  10. Great shots but I'm glad I wasn't close to them.

    1. My bad knees kept me from getting closer, not common sense, lol.

  11. That takes some real skill there! I wonder if they burned themselves before actually getting the skill down? Super cool!

    1. I would guess they got the skill down before lighting anything on fire, but I'd be surprised if they're singe free. You can read more about them at: https://www.imaginezensemblez.com/ensemblez

  12. Looks great! I am sure I cannot do a fourth of these. Looks easy but I am sure it is not. Plus, great job in the photos. It is not that simple to capture movement (at least to me).

    1. I still can't juggle three balls, lol. Thanks, I'm not very happy with the way they turned out though.
