“Essentially what photography is LIFE LIT UP.”

"The idea is to live your life in a way that makes you feel LIT UP.
ALIVE. EXCITED. BRIGHT.
Half-hearted anything won't get you there"

Independence Day Celebrations 2018

July 09, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Whoo! 3 blog posts made since I moved over here from the old blog at WP. Well at least I can say I have accomplished something this summer! :D

In reality it has been a busy summer; I've been busy away from the camera with my crafty business getting ready for craft fairs and fixing up a few new creation, I've been busy away from the camera spending time with friends at our ladies crafty group, and I've been busy spending time with the kiddos and even doggy sitting for my grandpuppies! And - I've made a couple of trips out to Phillipsburg to The Gallery, where I still have a few images on display. They will be there until the 21st of July, but even if you don't make it while I have things out there don't hesitate to visit them, it is a nice little gallery with a big variety of art.

That doesn't sound like much but it really has been a busy summer.

And then there's the 4th of July...

I know that you all know that I love to spend time walking around the zoo and capturing images of the animals. But did you also know that one of my favorite things to shoot is fireworks? Things to shoot with the camera that is. Don't really care to actually light those bad boys up myself; I'll leave that to the professionals. But I do love a nice fireworks show and the little towns in Osborne County put on a good show or two every year.

On the 4th the hubby and I went to the show here in Osborne, Dixie pup even went along, they had a nice show again this year. It did seem like they could have spaced the bursts out just a little more but what do I know? I've never set up a show like that!

Last night, July 8th, was the little town of Alton, Ks' Independence Day Celebration. Alton as you know from old posts over at the old blog is a little town with a big attitude. They have a hard working bunch of people that put on a couple of big events each year and this is the first time I've made it to this event. I doubt it will be the last. From a free supper sponsored by Co-Op to the fireworks show put on by the fire department and everything in-between it was a fun evening for everyone who attended.

I had plans to venture out of the county for extra firework shows this year too but had to miss the show at Waconda lake this time; and even though I had planned to go I ended up missing the show at Wilson lake as well.

There's always next year when I'll be out there capturing the BOOM! once again.
