Flameworking is the art of creating glass ornaments using a torch to melt glass rods while shaping it with different tools.
It’s an art that has been practiced since Ancient Syria in the 1st century B.C.
This Thai man is often found during the Saturday or Sunday Walking Markets in Chiang Mai working on his craft. It’s fascinating to stop and watch him skillfully shape beautiful trinkets and glass sculptures.
The rule of thirds is an important rule to learn for beginning photographers. It can even apply to portraits and not only landscapes shots. Here, the head of the man and the torch are placed on the focus points of the photo and makes it more pleasing to look than if he was placed right in the middle of the shot.

I’m a curious person so I figured why not create daily polls asking photography or travel related questions and let people vote and discuss about it. Please feel free to participate and give your opinion in the comments section if you have any ideas. Thanks!
