Is it meant to be funny?

I think it is a little dark, but a powerful image at the same time.

I never meant it to be. It's a bon fire, not a house fire. There's people that lose their homes, posessions and lives in fire related incidents all the time. In fact, I used to hang out with a girl in high school who's family lost their house in a fire. I'm not making fun of these people.

The only thing that those two events have in common are fire.

the image does not match the statement. i was expecting to see some destruction. all i see is some kids around a fire. as for the picture, very nice. you captured the flames very well, and the silohettes against the fire look add a level of interest.

I like this photo a lot.

Thanks all. This was actually taken the weekend before October 31 and was sitting on my computer. I was going through my folders as I was transferring them to my server and found it. I like doing that.

But it's an idea, like The Pledge of Allegiance. It's not something tangible, but it evokes a sense of patriotism and symbolizes America and is, more often than not, recited when in the presence of a flag.
