After a three month hiatus, I’m happy to start blogging again with these photos from last night’s Fourth of July fireworks display in Palos Verdes.
Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about life, as most of us do as we reach certain points in our existence. Life is fragile. Life is unpredictable. Life is fleeting. But most of all, life is how we take all that into account to make it beautiful and meaningful.
I’ve been making a mental list of beautiful and meaningful things I want to accomplish in my life. Taking photographs of long exposure fireworks is one of them. I know. It doesn’t take much to get me excited. I’m a geek. I didn’t have my tripod with me, so these photos are not all that great. But considering it was my first attempt, I’m happy that I can now cross this off my Life List.
A sincere thank you to my friend, Nancy, for inviting me to her beautiful home for an amazing evening of food, friends, and a spectacular view. Hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July!
Update: A few people have asked me about the camera settings for these shots. ISO 100, aperture f/16, shutter speed 13 seconds.
