We discover a “Shattered Reality” when we get up close to a sparkler with a macro lens.

To get a good shot sometimes I take a bunch of shots and edit the parts I like together and glue them together to make a much better shot.
Here I liked the left side of the sparkler in one photo and the right side in another.
