Making a fire to 'smoke' the inside of the house, to preserve the wood and to kill harmful insects.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Oh, quite a special work here...it concentrates on the activity, leaving everything else in shadows! I like this piece of work!

For once i do prefer the color version, this one is less subtle in the light depths, don't you agree ?

@k@: I also prefer the colour one I think.

The color shot definitely has a different mood --a little more cheerful perhaps.

@Twelvebit: Such is the power of the choice - monochrome or colour!
