And the Rockets' Red Glare
It wasn't all work at This D*mn House yesterday.
Because I was making such good progress last night, it was hard to stop working on the porch. But after all afternoon, I was sore and tired. And besides, the fireworks display was just across town in a few hours. AND ... I had that new tripod to try out!
I chose a spot on a walkway outside an office building where there weren't as many people camped out. I parked the car about a 5-minute walk away hoping to avoid the traffic jam of last year. At first, I thought, I'd made a bad decision. But, once the fireworks started, I was pleased. They were comin' right at me!
I think the tripod worked GREAT. These are just a few of what I got. (Haven't spent much time yet going through all of them. I have that to look forward to.) And my strategy for departure? Worked like a charm. After skulking behind all the buildings, carefully navigating GIGANTIC craters, I was on the main drag in about five minutes.
Hope you had a fantastic holiday that continues through the weekend ...
