Book burning

    Newer Older

    So, this deserves some explanation. Michele and Bob sell used books online, used books that they buy by the boxload at garage sales, estate sales, and such. Inevitably, there are books in every load that just don't sell. They're so bad that Michele and Bob can't even give them away, so rather than throwing them away, they use them as kindling. It's quite a spectacle, and my first book burning.

      Beautiful composition, and it packs quite an emotional punch. Nice work - though I hate to see any book in the flames.

      Loved this photo. Just used it in my blog post. I'll probably reuse it as well.
