Larger than Life

IMG_0212

I chose this photo for this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge: Scale.

Taken a few years ago, this photo shows a memorial bonfire for a friend who loved to ritually burn his family’s Christmas trees in early spring.

When he passed, the ritual tree burning became part of the ritual of saying goodbye.

I messed with this pic a bit so you could better see the crowd of people surrounding the fire to get a sense of scale.

Don’t worry folks, professionals were present and no harm done. But it does bring home how fast, hot and big a Christmas tree fire can get.

RIP Eric – we miss you.
