Flameless Dance

Fire spinners Jacob Jung, foreground, and Tai Rae, of Vashon Island, practice their moves with double staffs on Ruston Way, in Tacoma, July 6, 2011. The pair spent time on the waterfront before Jung boarded the train to visit family in Oregon.(Janet Jensen/Staff photographer)

    The silhouette is interesting and it is called “Flameless Dance” but as it is about fire spinners would it not have been better to have flames?

    Dean, fire is always fun, but normally we wait until the sun starts to set before we light up our toys. As this was just a spontaneous afternoon practice, fire wasn’t necessary.

    Janet, this picture is gorgeous! Thank you a thousand times.

    OK I am not saying anything about when (or even if) they should be playing with fire only commenting that I think the photo would look more interesting with fire. But don’t set anything on fire on my account!
