Fireworks

7 posts in this topic

Here are a few of the few pictures that I have taken this summer. The good news is I have lost 30 pounds with all the bike riding I had been doing smile

All of these were taken on July 4th with and Olympus 770sw hand held, braced against a railing and using the timer, and using the fireworks setting in the camera. The last one is a little fuzzy. Any c&c is welcome, just remember this was a point and shoot with no tripod. Enjoy!

I agree, that second one is really nice. I bet that fireworks show in D.C. had to have been pretty spectacular. Thanks for sharing.

Congrats on the weight loss! I've been trying as well, without the same good results.

Thanks guys, the fireworks show out there is a definite once in a lifetime thing. Timing is pretty easy when some one is just shooting one round right after the other, I just kept pressing the button. I even tried a few burst shots that worked pretty well too.

machohorn: after ten years as a forward observer in the field artillery bang/flash is a real bad thing. But I do love it when there is a flash...bang smile

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
