Dazzling photographer Grover Schrayer captured something I never knew: A candle always goes out in a small blaze of glory. For a fraction of a second, the vaporized wax particles are carried along the puff of smoke and refract light to create a rainbow pattern.
Like with most of the rest of the universe, I don’t really understand it.
It passes by so fast, you don’t even notice it. Life is always like that.
I’m reminded of something Krisi Metzen shared, the work of another photographer who captures the beauty of the fleeting moment. There is beauty in such things because they reveal underlying patterns–the mathematical structures of nature. These beautiful patterns are everywhere.
