This is a photo I took tonight– yes, me… with a lot of help from Andy. We took a class this week on how to “shoot” fireworks. When we told SuperMom what we were doing, she had a strong negative reaction… until we explained it was photographing fireworks — then she was ok with it .
I know that the 4th makes some of you kind of ill… all the patriotism and such — but, I think the 4th is more like a celebration of the good stuff about us — our generous spirit, our generally inclusive nature and culture and the fact that we can take a day to be with family, friends and explosives!
I have to say that this was one of the better fireworks experiences I’ve had — the show itself was pretty good… the company was excellent and getting to take some amazing photos was a fantastic new way to play with the camera. This was the trial run for the fireworks photos — tomorrow we’re going to do the big show in Minneapolis — wish us luck!
