This was nearly the last photo I ever took !!!
I wanted to get a photo of a clear blue flame when it suddenly fired a huge fireball which missed my head by about 5inches ! Evidently the gas supply is not as consistant as it claims to be !
I now have a great ( although fake ) suntan and am now a little more wary of weed wands !

OMGosh! Glad you are okay! Good lesson for all of us! Is the camera okay?

I'm lightly toasted but fine thanks ;)
Camera is fine too !
I'd warn anyone using one of these to be aware that evidently they can randomly spit out large fireballs ( I'll never forget the look on my Dad's face and the panicked voice " It wont turn off !!! " as it randomly erupted and shot straight past me !!!! )
Gas is a funny substance ! My main guess would be the room wasnt spacious enough and the gas to oxygen ratio went outta whack.
Either way from here on in I'll be doing it outside - and using the longest zoom lense I have !
Afterwards I googled out of curiousity and dont feel so bad now.
This fella managed to torch his entire neighbours garden using the same device !
