So this weekend we spent the evening on Friday 14th in Elder Park, Adelaide.  A monthly gathering of fire artists meet and basically.. share some amazing skills!  The circle around the fire artists featured a warm glowing array of people and colours who were there to enjoy the evening.  The crowds of around 200 were all rugged up carrying smiles.  It was a great turn out!

Over the course of the evening, different artists took to the centre to play and show their skills which have obviously been fine tuned to such an awesome degree… But its all made to look so simple and thats the beauty!  Chatting briefly with Tim Goddard the dude behind the event, he was saying that there is a lot of practice that goes into the performance and of course much of it for beginners and more experience artist trying new techniques without fire too.

Safety is also key in an event like this and no issues what so ever happened and the whole event was trouble free with such an amazing vibe.  An awesome family friendly event

An array of cameras were present, with photographers also practicing their skills in long exposure photography.  Ive already seen some amazing light painting images with super effects that create beautiful pieces of art.  I was without a tripod as I wanted to capture some still photojournalistic images thats shows the mood of the evening in reality.  But here is a couple of links to some friends I was with who were shooting the awesome arty work. Check them out! 🙂
