* Happy Fourth of July! *

Sparkly.

Ooooh...ahhh!

I ended up seeing two fireworks displays this weekend: one on Friday night and one on Saturday night. Woo hoo! I'm sure we could find one tonight, since it's the actual Fourth of July, but I'll pass. I did have fun experimenting with the point and shoot.

The above ones were taken on Friday night in Derby, Ct. Below are fireworks we went to last night with a bunch of relatives in Manchester, Ct. So many towns in New England have the same names as towns in England.
Hmmm...I wonder why that is?
;-)

And that's what we are celebrating today ~ our nation's Independence from the Crown. Like how I tied that all in?

I was further away from the fireworks for these photos. It made a difference!

Bonus shot: Our grand-nephew Adam using a toy tennis racket as a guitar at our family's Fourth of July party Saturday. Isn't he adorable?

Great shots, Patti! And even though the ones from further away are less defined, I like the colored dots! I almost feel bad that I didn't even try to take any fireworks pictures this year but only almost! I'm just as happy to look at everyone else's pictures!

And your grand-nephew is a real cutie!

What a cutie pie he is! I didn't see a single firework. Not a one. I was in bed much earlier than O'dark:30. I like that red & blue one. Sort of a bokeh shot!

Me again! Actually, Bokeh is a photography term. It's the blur in an out-of-focus area of a photograph.

Adam made me smile! What a cutie.

Your fireworks turned out way better than mine!
