Among the photos on “Intense Burn Begins”, my most recent post about the Setsubun festival at the Heian Shrine earlier this month, was Ripples, showing a thin slice of focus in the tumultuous heated hair near the burning pyre. This post is a bunch more of the same, just 'cause I think it's interesting.

What follows are pairs of images, a crop hilighting something interesting, and the full frame it's from. In many of these the full frame is a throw-away shot, but I include it for context.

Gorgeous! I love the painterly effect the turbulent hot air has on the out of focus background. Beautiful work!
