Hurricane Sandy knocked out my power for 30 hours (thankfully only 30!) So I got to enjoy candlelight for two nights, and when another
BPer suggested it was a good opportunity for photography, I went for a capture of this 'lantern', lit by its own candle plus 2 more off-frame.

Thanks, folks! And thanks Bob, for the shooting motivation. (And I didn't want the blow-out white that the flame would create, if I included it in the comp!)
