I haven't cropped any of the shots yet. Iknow a few will look better after cropping. These are just a few of my favs. I ended up with close to 100. I took my tripod, and managed to setup in a motel parking lot straight across from Boldt Castle where the display is shot from.

I've spent the majority of the time I'm on the pc since Thursday night ripping CDs to the smaller EHD. (That is, I keep switching out the CDs while working on other things... LOL) Between the two of us, I believe we own close to 400 CDs, and I only ever use them when in the vans. I figure this way I can listen while working on the pc, or cleaning in the house. AND, if I can figure out how to use the MP3 player Mike was given about 7 years ago I can take some of it with me from time to time! LOL

I think I need to try to finish up the planting today... or maybe tomorrow... The landlord stopped by to get the rent this morning so I have permission to plant asmall veggie garden,and know he's trying to get the house converted to electric heat. Having municipal power here in town helps a LOT. I know the electric bill will be fairly high some months, but it can't be as high as the fuel oil bill which I'm estimating will probably be about$800/150 gal in Sept... And, we end up needing about 150 gal every 3 weeks from Sept-March.

Anyway, I'd better get some other stuff done! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Beautiful LO's!! I absolutely LOVE "Can This Girl Talk!"...the photo is so awesome!! That kit is great isn't it? It is HUGE and there really is so much you can do with it. All the different elements that come with it are so neat.

Your firework pictures are awesome too!! I'm so jealous! Do live far from Boldt Castle? Tim and I were just up there 2 weekends ago, I think it was. I hadn't been there in YEARS! I got some beautiful pictures that day. It is so amazing there, and I didn't want to leave. LOL I LOVE how you can see the castle in the background behind the fireworks. :) We went to see some in Lowville last night, I brought my camera, tripod and didn't have the right lens. My pictures didn't turn out very good AT ALL! I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend girlie. :)
