It's FRIDAY!

Obviously. Hehe. Okay so tomorrow is the weekend! YAY! I am working on a project. I know how to knit (VERY basically) and have been drooling over some newborn hats for my photography...I ordered a crochet teddy hat a few months ago from a friend of a friend and have yet to use it BUT I found some free knit patterns from some of my favorite hats. SO I have been watching knitting videos and I HOPE that I get the hang of it and can start knitting my OWN hats and maybe use them to trade for other hats and things ! I just hope I don't fail epically LOL.

Anyways yesterday it was -SO- warm here. So nice out! My little man has bad allergies like his Momma (although mine were WAY worse as a kid..I don't even have them bothering me now) but he does. Snotty nose, sneezing, watery eyes..etc. So I have to give him some allergy meds until the season change becomes a little more permanent. ANYWAYS when my dear sweet husband got home from work he ate and we went out and rode his rhino around the roads. When we got back we were down my parent's house and Emily (my 8 yr old sister) had some sparklers left from July 4th last year. She lit them up and I finally got some light painting shots with them! I'm going to share those with you today!

WOW on the sparklers - "light painting" what a fun description! Way to catch the action. I like the fine detail of the "shapes."

I LOVE painting with light! I've never tried it with sparklers, but now I really want to! It's so neat how you can capture all the sparks as well as the movement. How long of a shutter speed did you use for these shots?

Vrinda said...

These snaps are out standing. I like those kids, they were having fun.

I love the sparkler shots too! My favorite is the second to the last one, where you've really got some fabulous bokeh.

Michelle said...

AWESOME sparkler shots!! Love that you all had some fun with them!!

Sparklers are about the only fireworks I enjoy anymore (that we do ourselves -- I still love going to the city displays!)

Sorry about allergies -- ug -- I developed them a few years ago and it stinks. Hoping this year won't be so bad... and it's always worse with little kids suffering! Poor baby!
