Before liftoff!


Making sure they don’t lift off.

A lot of people come for the bright colored Balloons…

Or for the Fire

Contained fire… sorry to disappoint.

I enjoy seeing the mass of people and the human interactions.


Lotsa pointing going on.

A couple of Notes
I walked up and down the route of the parade with my new fun lens.

Let me just tell you it’s much better than standing (or sitting) in the same spot for the whole parade.
It’s also nice to only live 3 blocks from the parade route.

ALSO… having a 70-200 2.8 makes a parade much more enjoyable.

I took a ton… but I’ll just post a couple of them here.
If you think I took a picture of you I can get you a link to the full gallery online.

I took my second camera with the wide/medium zoom but I hardly used it… I suppose it was still useful to make me look semi-important. haha

I also hung out with a friend Gordon who was shooting pictures for the Freedom Festival magazine.

Now for the FUN part… Let me tell you a STORY


Let’s start this off on a patriotic note!


Not as many flags but still as cool.


But don’t worry these kids had flags to spare.


These things were all over the place
… I meant the snapper things.
But yeah kids too!


More kids… some sat, some stood, others… they were more squatters.


And they liked to point at stuff

From the 4th of July Fireworks earlier tonight

Straight from the camera.
Don’t have time to edit… so I’m just tossing them straight online.

Here’s the deal on these pics…
Take them
, use them, just don’t abuse them.

My pictures are meant to be seen…

However, I do enjoy knowing where they go.

If you need larger… they’re stored somewhere else online, i can get you the gallery location if you want.

GALLERY OF PICTURES – Link

Stadium of fire provided a new opportunity and a new type of pictures.

Fireworks… not very hard to take pictures of (if you have a tripod) but very rewarding.
The pictures sometimes looks like they are of space or electrons scampering about.
