Whichever Way The Wind Blows

This image was taken at a Bonfire Night event at the Rothley Football Club last night. I was involved in booking the fire performers including this gentleman, Mr Simon Ratzker. His skill and work is just developing all the time!

This image shows the showmanship aspect of it all in technicolour close up - as long as you know which way the wind is blowing it's clear to see why he doesn't get burnt - makes it look easy doesn't he - to the crowd, face on, all they see is the flame in front of his face and those off to the side don't see it with the close up detail I've got here. He is, to them, eating fire. If the wind suddenly changes there is a different story and that's the risk..............but Simon being Simon he kind of takes it a stage further..............tomorrow!
