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.
