Happy 4th of July!

Last night, we went to a local fireworks show (yes, it was a day early). Of course, I just had to bring my camera and play with slow shutter speeds! These are a few of my favorites. I hope you're all enjoying your long weekends.

Happy Birthday, America!

Sara--Not sure why comments aren't showing up right now, but hopefully Blogger will fix the issue soon.

Anyway, no, I did not use a tripod. I didn't think about bringing it since I didn't want to lug it from the car into the field. I usually have a pretty steady hand, and if I'm tripod-less and need to use long shutter speeds, I'll often brace my elbows against something for extra support--in this case, the arms of my lawn chair. Given another situation, though, I'd probably try out the tripod. :)

Beautiful photos! I was sad we didn't do any firewors viewing this 4th...I really wanted to try out my new camera!
