      This stuff blows my mind. How did you figure such an amazing thing out!!??

      Really cool patterns of the ridges on the top. I wonder what makes them so evenly distributed like that? Almost looks logarithmic, or maybe even diminishing according to the Fibonacci sequence?

      Stupid question.... but what did you use to actually blow out the candle? Something gentler then breath? I have been wreaking my brain trying to figure out how to recreate this, but so far have found breath and compressed air to be a bit too much.

      I used my breath. The procedure is, blow it out, wait a couple seconds for the smoke to resume rising all around the wick, and snap the shot.

      Ah! I guess that was the other error I was making, I was trying to take the picture as soon after extinguishing as possible. Many thanks for the details.
