Saturday Snapshots: 4th of July

Linking up with Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera for another Saturday Snapshots! My 4th was SO much fun. We had a family bbq and decided that we will be doing a bbq from this point on for the 4th. I live in a nice cul-de-sac, we really lucked out when buying our home, we couldn't have asked for better neighbors. Last year we started a new tradition and we all get together at dusk and share fireworks and celebrate our Independence Day! I love seeing all the neighbors bring out the lawn chairs and get together for some fun!

Since I was in my kitchen all morning, I decided to keep the camera at bay and enjoy the food and company. Once the firework fun started the camera made an appearance. I got my tripod out so I could play with different apertures and shutter speeds.

Loving the little starbursts!


Some firework bokeh!

  2. Awesome 4th shots!!! I love the flag photograph. Next year I will be using my tripod ...this year I just enjoyed the fireworks. NICE work. Thanks for linking up.

  3. Love all the fireworks pictures. I didn't really get to see any this year, so this makes me happy! I'm so glad you guys have such a neat tradition now in your cul-de-sac!
