night vision / light writing


L - Nikon / T - Nikon
I'm so behind on my blogging these days, work has been in the way, but I won't carry on about that. T and her friends built a bonfire out back and roast marshmallows the other night (4th of July) just like they did last year this time. Last year they camped out there too, setting up 2 tents. This year was much more laid back and quiet and I worried less about the neighbors complaining . I wanted so bad to get some photos of the group but as I sneaked around the side of the house to take some I was afraid they would see me and think me a snoop so I quickly snapped a photo and headed back inside. It looked like they were having a nice time. / my best friend's birthday is on the 4th of July. makes for a great party. sparklers and a camera are fun.

That's too funny... thinking of you now sneaking around in the bushes going for a quick snap or two.

How is it that all of your shots are so evocative? I like to think of you sneaking about but yet respecting their space. Perfect balance.

great shots - I love light writing and haven't tried this yet. I want to though - maybe this is a good inspiration.

Leslye, that would be me, too! Sometimes when my oldest son has his friends over and they're playing their guitars I wonder how I could get a stealthy shot of them! T, your light-writing photo is very neat!

Oh, I do love sparklers. On July 5 we bought a HUGE pile of sparklers. We're surprising Sloane with them at her birthday party in November. Hee hee.
