Maybe it's the fact that I love candles, or bright lights contrasting dark backgrounds or even the color red. Either way though, this image was taken while having dinner with a couple of friends at the Ink Well. I set my camera down on the table and just shot the long exposure in Live View.
Candles and candle light have a special place in my heart. I may not seem like it at times but I'm a romantic. Candle lights at dinner is very, very intimate and really sets the mood to calm everyone down and relaxes those around it. Maybe it's stemmed from our ancestors who gathered around fires while out hunting for food.
Either way, this candle shot is there to remind me that there is always a place for beauty, romance and those little flames that we keep burning throughout the dark times.
