  1. Wow! Great shots. By the way, I realized I wasn’t getting your photographs on my reader so I checked and WP had “unfollowed” you. That happens so often. Well, I’m back and catching up on what I missed:)

    • Hello my friend, thank you so much for your comment! I’m really happy you noticed and ‘liked’ this series. This artist has a wonderful performance, and I’m so glad he let me photograph him and share on my blog.

      Hahaha, I understand when WP ‘unfollows’ blogs (for no apparent reason!) because it’s happened to me too. It must be a technical glitch or something 😦 But you know you’re always welcome here 😀 🙂 ❤

  2. Hi Takami! I don’t know how I missed this post! How exciting to see a fire-eater perform live. I’ve never witnessed such a thing in real life. And I love the balloon twisting. It’s such a fun way to bring joy to children and I love the creativity these guys exhibit. What fun! Wonderful and entertaining photo essay, Takami! Wishing you and your husband a very happy day! :))

    • Hello Jeannie!
      Thank you so much for your positive feedback. It was also my first time to see a fire-eater perform live (and at one of my favourite zoos, too!). He really was an amazing performer, with many various acts. His balloon twisting was very entertaining too – going out of the way to create his own original designs. I’ve never seen kids so riveted before! 🙂

      Afterwards, I was able to give him my contact information, and send him the photo data. He seemed very happy with the results 🙂 It’s another rainy day today, but fortunately the typhoon has passed. Thanks again for your warm wishes!

  3. Wow… Stunning gallery, dear Takami… My favorite photo is the second one… Exciting and playful… Congratulations on this gallery. I love it ❤
    Best wishes and I hope you have a great week ahead, Aquileana 😀

    • Hello my friend 🙂
      I’m very happy you enjoyed this gallery. Yes, the 2nd photo showed a very exciting moment 😀 I enjoy very much to watch great performers and admire their showmanship. I wish you a great week too!!

  4. Wow, that is incredible ~ both the 2nd & 3rd shots are just amazing. You caught the flames so perfectly, I really cannot believe that this guy was alright after that… Stunning.

    • Hello Randall,
      You’re too kind! Many thanks for your generous praise 😀

      The performer was amazing, and weather & natural-lighting wise, everything was perfect for the ‘photo moment.’ He was just as good with engaging the kids/building rapport with them, and had many new fans after the show was over. I too, can’t imagine breathing fire like him. And he did say: Okay kids, *don’t* try this at home 😀

    • Thank you!! and sorry for my belated reply.
      You’re right, he was a wonderful entertainer and I really enjoyed watching/photographing him. I’m glad you enjoyed this series.
      TGIF and wish you a lovely weekend,
      Takami 🙂

    • Thank you Lindy!
      Please excuse me late reply, I was away from the PC for a few days.
      I can’t imagine doing what this performer does, but he was amazing & a real crowd pleaser 🙂

      Wish you a great Friday & weekend ahead,
      Takami
