Spinning steel wool – a front yard adventure

Fire In My Yard

Things have been very hectic lately with my day job and not only have I not had much of a chance to do blog updates, I haven’t had much of a chance to get out and do any shooting.  I did get out Friday night into my front yard and did a little steel wool spinning.  For those that don’t know what spinning steel wool is, it is basically lighting steel wool on fire and spinning it around.  You do this by putting the wool inside of a metal cooling whisk and attaching some sort of a cord to the end of the whisk.  Once you light it, it will burn for about 20 to 30 seconds depending on how fast you fling it around.  While you would typically look for a more scenic place to do this, my front yard worked, and I was just playing around after digging the supplies out for an upcoming photo meetup group outing.
