Weekly Photo Challenge: Express Yourself

Our theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge this week is: Express Yourself.
Our instructions:  “Today, we challenge you to show us what express yourself means to you.”

Hmmm.  That’s a pretty open-ended theme.  What do I think it means?  I think it means I have carte blanche.  😉

And what better way to express myself than through the medium of fire?  I don’t really think this photo is an esoteric reflection of my soul or anything (honestly, I’m not that complicated).
I just like it.  I like the contrast between warm and cool colors, and the way the colors combine in the tiny reflections of light.

Why did I take a photograph of a flaming shot?!?  I took it to go along with a post I wrote for the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge, about doing flaming shots with my husband’s 75-year old grandparents.  Seriously.  You haven’t lived until you’ve done flaming shots with your husband’s 75-year old grandparents.

And now?  It’s tradition.

Meet the German digestif, Kirschwasser . . . it’s good for digestion!  (I don’t know how it works, it just does.)
