I have seen those pins on pinterest that show burning dandelions saying that when you set them on fire they burn purty colours. I never really believed it, but i figured it would be fun to give it a try because it includes one of my favourite things, taking pictures of things on fire! Yay!
I was just thinking now that i could have taken a little video, i always forget about the video option on my camera. (I really should start playing with that more often) Instead i tested out the -high speed burst- photo option. ..now, at the moment there is fire ban here, so i really did not want to be playing with fire too much outside, so instead i brought a couple of seed heads inside & did it in the kitchen sink.
Here are the results:
(the first try took 14 shots & i am cutting out a few)
here is another one that was smaller....
i did see online another photo that someone did of burning a whole bunch, a little bouquet of them! that might be neat.. but that might be more of an outdoor project and someone else holding them while i take the picture. Maybe later when the fire ban is lifted. i do not think there will ever be a shortage of dandelions during the summer!
& here are just some more photos i took of dandelion seed heads, because they are pretty!
hopefully i will do more posts soon!
