The Intrigue and Allure of Fire

Advertisement

Fire is a double edged sword that has enabled the survival of mankind, yet caused massive destruction, destroying everything on its path. This element has the potential to delight or devastate from the first flickering spark. People are hypnotized and fascinated with the fire dancing on the end of a matchstick. In our hands we hold a fleeting power, to be transferred quickly within a few seconds. In this post we feature beauty of the birth of fire.

    btw, this article is in my top 5 of worst article ever. Oh! it’s in the inspiration category? Ah… so.. you probably searched around the web for hours to find those images? Ah… euhm.. oh! what’s that? google images!

    god… seriously…

    you can do better than that.

    btw, this article is in my top 5 of worst article ever. Oh! it’s in the inspiration category? Ah… so.. you probably searched around the web for hours to find those images? Ah… euhm.. oh! what’s that? google images! Nice! I was able to type “match fire” in the little html input and in the very first page I found most of all your images, that’s an awesome application we got here !

    god… seriously…

    you can do better than that.

    Spectacular shots….

  • bs kishore, 07 April 2010

    I couldn’t believe that this post was published by noupe… it’s not the idea.. you folks have sticked to a single category… totally uninspiring.

  • Uzair, 07 April 2010

    You had me at the first one.

  • Naeem, 07 April 2010

    Awesome shots!

  • Tina P, 07 April 2010

    Lame. Just lame.

  • Hammad Ahmed, 07 April 2010

    This article is unnecessary. Very unnecessary. Photos are horrible.
    Please try again.

  • Shravan Mishra, 07 April 2010

    Never seen matchstick burning so beautifully.

  • Jordan, 07 April 2010

    Interesting shots. Though I don’t find these particularly inspiring, they’re definitely interesting. Thanks for sharing.

  • Lewis Nyman, 07 April 2010

    I don’t think the article was a bad idea, there are a lot of areas in photogaphy where you could find amazing fire shots.
    It’s a shame you only stuck to one area.

  • Felix Groenewald, 08 April 2010

    Reading the feedback sometimes makes me laugh.

    I would have thought that a good designer should be able to think out of the box.

    Take the above images for example. What do you really see?
    Fire & smoke. No, I don’t think so.

    What I see is the shadows, color combination, effects, refelctive light etc.

    For those not inspired, maybe you are not the designer you think you are.

  • Tyron Bache, 08 April 2010

    One image would have been more than enough but cool though.

  • Web Risorsa, 08 April 2010

    Most of them are similar. Nice roundup, but not good enough to impress…

  • Jordan Walker, 08 April 2010

    Fire has indeed always peaked an interest.

  • Rupinder Singh, 09 April 2010

    awsmmm…vvery creative though

  • Mitch, 09 April 2010

    Either you’ve got a lot of spam or some folks don’t like your images. Personally, I find them fascinating, shots one doesn’t see every day. It’s neat seeing the fire and the match at the same time like this; thanks for sharing.

  • Jan Falesnik, 12 April 2010

    Oh my, pretty neat! Euh…Nice shots! Greetings from Czech

  • Lawrence Whiteley, 12 April 2010

    Phew, nearly singed my eyebrows on this post!

    I can stare at fire for hours, what an element, although smoke can be just as much of a temptress
