Six days ago our family started a home improvement project. We got all the shingle (gravel stones) for the concrete. Today we were cutting reinforcing steel for the concrete.

As soon as I saw that the the sparks looked so cool I quickly got my camera to take some photos. The speed at which the angle grinder cut the steel, shot the red hot sparks in all directions. I really like this effect!

Really cool, I am reminded of the sparklers we light during our festival of Deepawali.
