Creating Fire {211/365}

This entry is from a nifty little thing I did with my on-camera flash, a mirror, and a little glittery unlit candle. I was at a 40th birthday party and happened upon these pretty little gold candles that were unlit sitting innocently on a table.  I picked one up and not seeing a match handy thought of the next best thing.

In front of me down a small hallway was a mirror.  I held the candle up, lined the wick up with my on-camera flash in the mirror and clicked the shutter.  Voila!  Instant "flame" :)
