My wife’s parents were out for the 4th of July weekend, and we pretended to be teenagers again and threw are party at their house—sadly, with their full consent and permission. And well, OK, it wasn’t a party as such, just a few friends, some hotdogs and beer, (no wine, just this once) and fireworks enjoyed from a view provided by the location of the house itself—Alta Heights. It was beautiful.
When I was a kid I remember trying to take pictures of fireworks, only to get back perfectly exposed solid black shots…”Coal at Midnight” anyone? I thought it was high time to give it another shot—yes, sadly, that pun WAS intended. Here’s my favorite of the lot!
