Fireworks In Greensboro on July 4, – Blog Assignment #7

PHO 139 Blog Photo Week 7

As I pondered what I was going to photograph for my Blog #7, I decided that I was going downtown in Greensboro on July 4, to photograph the fireworks.  So as I prepared to go and not forgetting “in order to be a photography you have to think like a photography.”   So I grab all my gear including tripod and headed out.  I had never attended a firework event in Greensboro so I arrived downtown about an hour before the kickoff.  As I searched for a good spot to photograph from I decided I would just wait and see.  When the fireworks started I had to immediately change locations and found out there was not going to be a great location to photograph the fireworks.  So I just made the best of a bad situation.   The fireworks lasted about 15 – 20 minutes and were the worst I had ever witness.  So as I entered my housing development all I could see was the sky lighting up with fireworks and I jumped out and photographed a few pictures and that is what I am posting for this blog. So the bottom line is I wasn’t totally defeated.  Living in the Washington, DC area for over 30 years, I am a witness that the best “real fireworks” by far is at the Washington Monument and you could see them for miles all over the city.



A Nature’s Beauty – Zinnia Flowers Blog Assignment #6

PHO 139 Blog Photo Week 6

This week’s Introduction to Digital Imaging,  I wanted to share an outdoor nature picture which show the beauty of the colorful zinnia flowers with the butterfly enjoying it also. Zinnias are popular garden flowers because they come in a wide range of flower colors and shapes, and they can withstand hot summer temperatures, and are very easy to grow from seeds.   When we look all around you cannot help but see all God’s beauty and creations right before our eyes to enjoy.   With the upcoming Fourth of July on Tuesday I wish everyone a blessed vacation week.
