Let´s say your idea is the best in the competition... but photographically speking doesnt say anything.

I was going to do this same Idea, but more like the Billy Joel video (I guess it was in his video) that a girl burns her bra in the kitchen sink! ;) (or... was it in a video of Queen?.. hmm.. maybe both!) :D
Anyways... your idea is the best! I thought exactly the same when I saw 70´s :P

Very cool picture. Burning bras....never really happened though. Bras were tossed into the trash cans in the 60's and draft cards were burned....and somehow the two events merged. The 70's brought us women daring not to wear the bras, but I challenge you to prove that at ANY time "burning" bras really even happened. All that aside, great pic!

Excellent portrayal of the '70's, and interesting and unique execution.

Great stop-action. I'm curious to know the logistics of this one...my guess is that you gasolined up the bra, lit it aflame, and threw it up in the air, but I'm not sure how you could walk away unscathed if that's indeed what you did. Whatever you did, it must have been a fun one to shoot! I doubt my housing association would let me do anything like that, besides, they think I'm weird enough as is. Anyway, very entertaining picture.

Pretty cool..glad you did something interesting! It's out of focus (I don't know how you'd get something like this IN focus anyway) but I dig it. 7

Very classic 70's...makes me wish I'd been older then lol. nice catch on what appears to be a difficult shot...how many bras did you go though?

Not completely clear - technically - but, it's a pretty neat picture.

Ok, I dont understand this photo. I would never burn my brazeere for a photo. The concept doesnt even play into the 70s, but the fire looks cool on the black background.
