Fire Consumption at 7th and Penn Avenue

We were headed back to the car after walking down to the Point and the Three Rivers Arts Festival.

On the corner was a street performer, consuming fire.  Yikes!

I asked what it was like the very first time, when she was learning to do it. I could not imagine even attempting this feat. My daughter Laura said watching  it makes her nervous.

I found it mesmerizing to watch.    Photographing fire  is something I need to read about for a future shoot.

She graciously agreed to my photographing and blogging it.  You can follow her @PghFireGirl

You have to see it up close and in person to get the full effect…..my photos can’t really capture the fire eating adequately.

All I can say is, WOW!

  1. What did she say it was like to eat fire for the first time? I can’t imagine making myself do that… this woman has guts! (Figuratively and literally.)

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
