Hard to believe it’s week 7 already – but there you are. Time flies, and all that jazz.
This week, I got some cool tulips where you can see how the roots are growing, did some baking (strawberry lemon muffins), and we took Emma to Riverscape for the first time to watch the ice skaters and walk along the river. There are quite a few shots, so I won’t post them all. But if you’re interested, the rest are here.
Not much this week beyond snow, staying inside, and trying to keep warm. Hope you all kept warm, too!
This past weekend brought the Cityfolk festival in downtown Dayton on Friday night, a tour of the famous Westcott House in Springfield (by Frank Lloyd Wright) on Satuday, and another visit to the Cityfolk festival for fireworks on Sunday. I got a kind of ridiculous amount of fireworks photos, and I will be posting every one that I edited. So, prepare for about 30 total photos this week! So either A. Sorry, or B. You’re welcome! All shots posted in the order they were taken.
This was taken about 2 or 3 hours before the fireworks started, when I staked out a spot down by the river. But I wasn’t in a van down by the river. 🙂
In contrast, this was how nuts things got about 1 hour before the fireworks. They started swarming and I had to really protect my spot since we all know that people, generally speaking, are pushy jerks. 🙂
Fireworks – all of these were taken at low ISO (100), narrow aperture (usually between f/16-f/22), and long exposure (anywhere from 6-25 seconds):
But by far, my absolute favorite shot of the night is this:
I’m pretty happy with it… I love that you can clearly see the people on the bridge enjoying one awesome thing that Dayton has to offer!
Thanks for looking!
