Photo of the Day: Abstract Fireworks #1

At our family fireworks display a few days ago, I wasn’t able to set up the tripod and get typical fireworks photos, because we were so close that I would’ve had to point the camera straight up into the sky. Even if I could’ve done this, the photos wouldn’t have been anything special with no foreground. So I opted to try something different with this shot. I used the “zoom effect” by holding my camera and zooming during a long shutter speed. What do you think?

Photo of the Day: Rave Run

On Friday night a few of my friends participated in the Rave Run in Kansas City. The Rave Run is a 5k un-timed race through the dark, with lots of bright, flashing, neon lights; people wearing glow glasses, bracelets, and other crazy apparel; and rave music along the route. Since we weren’t racing the clock, it was fun to run alongside my husband and friends. Despite the fact that we held a conversation the entire time, we still finished in under 29 minutes, according to our watch. Obviously I couldn’t carry my Canon 60d while I ran, so my little point-and-shoot had to suffice.
