Fire Spinning at Zoolander

I got some great shots of (a fire spinner who wishes to remain nameless):edited at a little party called Zoolander: The Return of Mugato on Saturday. The party marks the return of the gog at the new gog which is called The Bomb Factory. It's also known as the former residence of ManiaTV.

This shot is another attempt at combining flash with the slow shutter photo to capture fire spinning. I think I'm getting better at it.

Also I had a significant number of girls that wanted to show me their boobs for photos. I'm not sure what it says about my ethics or taste but I can't complain.

Fire Spinning at Confluence Park

Originally uploaded by gamp
It's getting warm and the fire spinners are back at Confluence Park in Denver again. Last week the cops showed up and stopped it, right when it was stopping anyway. Spinners have been practicing their art at the park for 7 years now, and have been featured on CNN national news, and the local Westword magazine. The spin poi, hula hoops, staff, darts, swords, and juggle. Luckily no cops showed up last night, maybe because it was Cinqo De Mayo and they were busy in other parts of town.

Last night I also tried some new techniques with a flash towards the end of the night, and had one ok photo as a result. (not this photo, this one is just ambient light)

Double Cheeseburger Spicy McChicken

Ok so the only interesting thing I've done in the past week was make and eat a double cheeseburger double McChicken sandwich. It was good.

It wasn't my idea either, it was inspired by a blog post
