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 ...

NV- those shots are awesome. Mine didn't turn out so well even though we were really close. I think I need the tripod (and a few less shots of Apple Pucker) to get some good shots like ours. Oh, and I really need my big girl camera back ;-(

Thanks, ladies. I have to say that I'm quite pleased. Can't wait to spend some more time combing through the other shots.
