Default Box of matches!

Shot with two lights, one to light the box and the other to light the background and a one second exposure to add the fire. Didn't come out quite as I had hoped, but I still like it

I reallly like the second one, but for some reason I wish there were match heads showing in the box.

I have been wanting to photograph burning matches for over a year now, but I'm a chicken. I did a set of creative match shots last year (unlit) as compensation. lol

Athena... you missed the perfect chance to say "you've had a burning desire to photograph burning matches..." I hate too see a perfectly good pun opportunity go to waste.
