Photo Challenge #27 / Nighttime

A little about this photo…

It’s fireworks-time in my part of the world. I chose this photo for my “Nighttime” prompt. Who doesn’t like fireworks?

(Actually, I do know people who don’t like fireworks. A family friend, for one. When I asked her why, she said they bring back memories of the bombs that fell in her city when she was a kid during World War II. Makes complete sense.)

Photo Challenge #52 / From a Distance

A little about this photo…

These are the fireworks over Niagara Falls. I took this photo back in November, but I thought it was appropriate to save for the time between Christmas and New Year’s.

Please note all the people taking video or whatever with their smart phones. It’s funny, but I always think to myself: Why don’t those people just relax and enjoy the firework display instead of trying to capture it in a picture? Then I look down at my big DSLR camera and shut my mouth!
