Hello Dear Reader,
Can you believe that it’s already July? It seemed like just yesterday was January, and now the year is just a touch past half over. I know that my parents and grandparents spoke the truth now, when they said time gets faster as we get older. Anyway…. I am planning to find some firework display to view, somewhere in celebration of the patriotic occasion.
The dry conditions here currently give me pause, as brush-fires are always a threat, no matter how much rain this state experiences. The fires seem to go hand-in-hand with hurricane season. Even so I am going to try and take some firework photos. Night photography has always been a challenge for me and I have very little experience with it, so I am eager for a chance to see what I get, so to speak. I know that I should post my firework photos after the event, but just in case the fireworks, or festivities are either cancelled, or rained out :), I am going to share my last years photos first. Maybe by digging them up and posting them I can see if I have gotten any better at taking them. Keep your fingers crossed. So until next time, Enjoy! Please have a Happy and Safe 4th of July!
Last year my family and I celebrated the fourth in Eustis Florida, where the Independence celebration is paired with the city’s First Friday celebration. The day long street party kicks off in Ferran Park, set alongside picturesque and enormous Lake Eustis. There are eats and treats and a few booths thrown in, plus games and rides and for kids. They also have an outdoor concert stage that is gorgeous when lit up at night. The performers in my photos were an Eagles Tribute Band. I do not remember their names.
