Today’s WordPress Daily Post asks us to focus on Flames. Of course, fire has been a key contributor to the advancement of civilizations across the ages. Starting from its early use for protection and heat, usage evolved over time to smelting and creating new substances, such as bronze and iron for tools.
Control of fire is pretty much taken for granted these days, as we turn on our stove and fire shows up for cooking. Heat is generated in a controlled environment when we need it to feel comfortable or want some warm water. Our ancestors had to acquire and perfect skills to create and control the flames that sustained them.
Here we see the flames in their more primal state, licking the gathered wood and heating it until combustible gases are released. Looking into a fire of this form, we can almost feel a connection to our ancient precursors and imagine them sitting around a fire in much the same way, talking about the details of today’s hunt and the work they put in gathering all the food.
Wishing you a wonderful day!
