Photo Challenge #27 / Nighttime

IMG_9645“Lighting Up the Night Sky” / Theme: 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

20181103ma_5948“Celebration” / Theme: 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!

Photo Challenge #51 / It’s Pretty

20181117ma_6277“Tree Lights” / Theme: It’s Pretty

A little about this photo…

Magical Christmas trees made out of lights. The only thing that would make this photo prettier would be for there to be snow on the ground! (By the way, these are part of the Festival of Lights display in Niagara Falls.)
