Photographic Challenges

I learned Sunday night
that making great photographs

during a fireworks show
is much harder than it looks.

I threw out WAY more than I kept
and I probably kept too many.

And some of the ones I kept
are ones that Gavin took

for a little go round.

Do fireworks displays still hold for you
all the magic they held in for you in childhood?

When they look like this, it's hard not to feel the magic!

No you did,t keep too many. It is very, very difficult - and I have rarely seen it done so well.
