So, here is the shot. The one that cost me a burned arm. My wife has completed her editing and allowed me to post. Whattaya think?

I was flingin’ sparks from the left. It was a thirty second exposure. What that means is that real life didn’t look quite like this- to the standing observer, the sparks weren’t in long clean lines, but were individual sparks falling along the paths you see here. And there weren’t this many all at the same time. What you’re seeing is a whole half-minute of life frozen into a single image. Also, the sky was black to everyone standing there. The camera collected all the light in the sky the whole time and that makes it seem like it’s still blue to the naked eye.

This is not the great red spot on Jupiter. Nor is it a nipple, for those of you who were lookin’ for some adventure porn. It’s a paintball bruise. It’s whatcha get on the back of your thigh when you’re playing paintball with a bunch of high-strung kids who are hopped up on adrenaline, Gears Of War, and birthday cake. Yes, you can raise your gun over your head, yes you can call “I’m Out.” but one of the little buggers will still shoot you on the back of the leg just out of basic twitchiness. And for any of you who have seen me in kayaking gear and know that my leg is hairier than the one here- you’re right. It’s my wife’s thigh. Swoon, you mooks. It’s a nice leg.
Oh, and this is the bruise she had as quick as we got home from the paintball field. She wouldn’t let me take a picture two days later when it looked like a tropical fish for color and design. Amazing.
