Inspired by Mathai's Light Writing post, I wanted to do something that gives similar drama but with a faster shutter.  I can't get Yousef and Noor to stand still for 2 seconds - so an ordinary torch would produce a rather dull result. Then I saw that my wife had bought sparklers.  I knew instantly that this would produce fun results.

There is a lot of potential for some real fun shots.  In the ten minutes we spent in the garden two nights ago, these three were worth sharing.
