As I was madly clicking pictures during my son's birthday dinner, I was mesmerized by the smoke from the candles and the abstract patterns they made. BTW...this was my youngest's 33rd. Time flies.

    Beautiful image Donald! The smoke trais are absolutely beautiful, and they kind of echo the frosting.

    I went through all your pics but this one really got me. I absolutely love this. Of course if it was MY cake, you'd have a whole lot more candles. LOL

    Excellent shot of your baby boy's 33rd birthday cake! You actually captured it at just the perfect moment. If you notice, you can still see a slight flicker on the wick of the candles, and the resulting swirling and twirling of smoke from the freshly blown out candles. The variety of candles is also a fantastic addition to this photograph....some being vivid solid colors and other in various colors with stripes. An award winning photo of your child's birthday cake. You take the seemingly everyday moments and turn them into something very monumental and memorable.....few people take the time or make the effort to do that, Don!!
