Happy 4th of July !!


How was yours?! BBQ? Fireworks?

Ours started out with…

Beer-boiled, Turkey Hot Dogs with Red-wine Glazed Onions, on Garlic Toasted Buns, with Honey & Cinnamon Peaches, & Sparkling Blackberry Pop!

In the evening, we went to the fairgrounds to watch the fireworks.

I was so excited to try shooting the fireworks with my camera. At long, long last, I get to control shutter speed, ISO, aperture… AND focus!! How to explain how much that delights me?!!

Test shot to check light settings. We’re atop a skinny walkway that points right at the place of detonation.

The show begins!

Some of my favorites:

Then there were these weird blobby sparkling blobs that float down for a long time. I don’t know what they are, I liked them, but they were weird!

Almost like galaxies…
