Fireworks

leave a comment »

Hi, long time no post. Four months and a day to be exact. I didn’t intend on neglecting this blog but have been keeping busy and more or less forgot about it. While on vacation this week I figured I’d try to post a few things and hopefully will keep with it better moving forward.

This summer I tried photographing fireworks for the first time. It was a lot of trial and error and more bad shots than good, but I had a few “keepers” that I’m relatively pleased with.

The following are a mix from the 4th of July and my town’s annual fair. All were shot with my Pentax K-r and (I think) the 18-55 kit lens.

The Donkey That Almost Ruined Easter!

with one comment

You probably wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t have a picture as proof, but last Sunday while my wife was in another room, this little wild donkey (at least I think it was a donkey)¬†got into our house and ate all of her Easter Candy!

Pinata Easter 2013s

OH NO!!!!

Don’t worry, we quickly thought of a way to retrieve the candy; all ended well.
Well, except for the donkey.
