“It Was a Pleasure to Burn”

Ray Bradbury’s opening line to Fahrenheit 451 seemed like a fitting title for this post.

I never knew it could be so haunting to watch pictures burn.


The plastic blistered and stretched as the flames licked the photos.


The faces melted and the ink drown in the fire and ash.


Although it was chilly, windy and sad, it was a very beautiful evening to enjoy one of the last fires at our house.
