still life in the sun

“I love thee to the level of everyday's most quiet need, by sun and candle light...I love thee with the breath, smiles, tears, of all my life.”
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning

[Note: I don't think this is the best example of a well-executed photo, but I just loved the draping candle wax (burned as I sat up late on the night of July 4th listening to the boom of fireworks from a nearby display) and then the bright light of the following morning]

I can't believe the wax didn't melt. Yesterday I put a cube of butter on my back porch to soften and minutes later it came back a drippy, squishy mess. (but I guess that's what 114 degrees will do to butter)
Beautiful picture!

It was super early in the morning (still cool-ish outside) when I snapped the pic. The wax had already melted on a nearby black candlestick, though.
