Shot in late afternoon I used full flash to contrast the silhouette of a man breathing clouds of red fire against a brilliant blue sky

Description

Mr George, a refugee from Kenya, started a lone incongruent performance of fire eating in scorching heat on Queens Beach situated along the popular tourist Atlantic Seaboard of Cape Town. Sandwiched between sea, sky and bikini-clad tourists, he braves the oil drum and torch of fire act to survive before the winter season brushes him off the windswept streets.
