This photo of the week is by Alastair McAskill. He rediscovered it recently in his archive. I really like the movement and the mood – it feels like it should be an oil painting.
And there’s a bonus this week. Alastair’s photo prompted me to revisit his flickr feed and I was reminded of these fab hooping photos with even more colour and movement. You can see more from this night and some of his other events here: flickr.com/photos/joystickjunky/albums.
Or if you’re into hooping, visit www.facebook.com/Hoop-and-Glory-127884547233636/timeline/ and look out for the very talented Tracey (in the red boots). She tells me today (saturday) is World Hoop Day 2015. That’s worked out rather well for me then.
Not as out of season as you might think – this was taken by Jessica Mackie on a warm summer evening. We were toasting marshmallows on one of those garden candles (well we didnt have any wood for a bonny) and playing with some sparklers I found (who doesn’t have spare sparklers in the drinks cabinet?).
If you want to see what she can do with proper fireworks, see below. She took these at Neston, Wiltshire, last year. Thanks Jess.
