Magical Flaming Book Burning


A twinkling-eyed and bewhiskered magician in top hat and full regalia, Marty Capitano, entertained families and tons of kids today and I was captivated by his book which ignited upon opening and caught fire. Just opening his well-worn and ancient looking book revealed very real fire. Huge, HOT licking flames. It's magic but, oh so entertaining. Kind of hard to get the hot dancing flames to cooperate for the camera, but the trick in person is very realistic and captivating. How do magicians do that?

I have no idea how they do that, but it's sure fun to watch. Kinda like the magic of your photos, Frank!

Now if he told you it would take all the fun out of it. Maybe it's magic dust, like behind my refrigerator.

I wish I could do portraits, let alone flames!
