Bonfire Festival 2010 (Friday Night 26th Nov)

Fire, in its most beautiful and controlled moments, moving and flying around with such grace and passion of the performers, accompanied by music. This is Bonfire Festival 2010 on the Friday night on 26th November 2010.

Having watched Bonfire Festival performances for the past few years, it’s been great watching them grow bigger and better over the years, here’s my Bonfire Festival 2009 post and my photographs from Bonfire Festival 2009 on Flickr ! Therefore, I was back again to catch Bonfire 2010 and it was a night to be mesmerised by the graceful fire performances again !

The program on Friday night was firstly Open Stage for aspiring performers to showcase their latest routines and performances at 8pm and at 915pm, The Challenge whereby 8 performers were randomly paired up with different musicians playing different instruments to produce their own unique personal performance and interpretation of the music along with their fire performance. These performances were simply superb and I hope my humble photographs would be able to showcase their true passion and performance in the Bonfire Festival 2010.

Tonight, on the 27th November 2010, a Saturday night, this is the program, 9m-10pm – Invisible Self -> A Bonfire Production. More details would be on their website here ! Do take note of the festival ticket door price, check out their site for more details!

Let me bring you through Bonfire Festival 2010 (Friday Night 26th November) performance through my eyes and lens ~ Bonfire Festival 2010 …….

A night of fires burning and moving gracefully in action, choreographed beautifully with music and dance, by well trained and experienced performers from different parts of the world. It was the night of Singapore’s BonFire Festival 2009 held at the Dhoby Ghaut Green from the 27th November to the 28th November.

The night was HOT and their performance was HOT !! I am always fascinated by such wonderful arts performances and amazed at their skills, commitments and beauty. Along with the element of FIRE, somehow or rather, I am very attracted to FIRE maybe because my Earth element is FIRE too !

Got there early, sat at the last row of seats, saw many DSLRs mounted on tripods and monopods. I am a lazy photographer because I didn’t bring any of those đŸ˜› … Soon the Fire performances began and I was happily firing away, first up was Fengshui, followed by Dai Zaobab and G.

However, something tragic happened, my Canon 30D went out of action again !! Another Error 99 and I suspect that it was the shutter again……… That’s it ….. Can’t take any more BonFire Festival 2009 photographs !! Do check my photographs of BonFire Festival 2009 before my Canon 30D went out of action !!

Continued watching other performances and I am very disappointed and angry that I wasn’t able to capture their wonderful performances in action and photographs !!! Overall, enjoyed myself thoroughly at BonFire Festival 2009 !!
