We spent the day eating ribs and baked potatoes, swimming in Bebe and G's (my parents) pool and watching fireworks. I made the mistake of bringing along the wrong lens. A week ago I thought I was too far away tonight I was way too close to capture anything else than the actual explosions.
I was hoping to do some sparkler writing but lets face it I have toddlers. Toddlers and hot sparklers leads to stress more than fun so that idea died quickly.
I will say that once I changed out the lens I was good to go. I wanted to capture the kids and the fireworks. This will need a little tweaking since they could stand completely still. But I still like the idea. The one below has a ghost like essence to it. Maybe I'll try it again at Halloween?
The house next door apparently hired some professionals to run a private show for them so we got to enjoy it and it didn't cost us a dime :) To me that is an odd profession and very seasonal although every guy I know would like to do it.
