Happy day-after-4th of July! This week is my Part II of our Summer Festival... the fireworks! I don't have a tripod (but oh how I would love one) so I just did the best I could trying to hold still and shoot the show. Also, I don't know how to work my camera in the dark. It seems like the whole thing was doomed from the start, but I actually got some interesting shots. Not technically beautiful, but interesting if you squint your eyes. So... when you get to the pictures, please squint. We're on the honor system here.
July 4th also happens to be my father's birthday. He's passed on now, but I still always wish him a happy birthday anyway. Here is an interesting and odd fact: my dad's brother was also born on the 4th of July, but they aren't twins. They were born on the same day, but five years apart. For years they thought that all the fireworks and big parties were for their birthday. (This could explain a little bit about my dad's personality now that I think about it.)
I also wonder if my emotionally fragile grandmother just had the babies scared out of her because of all the banging and booming. I'll have to ask someone about that.
Anyway, enough about my eccentric family. On with the show!
I hope you're having a great Sunday no matter where you are!
