photo friday: the night

4 Jun

Technical skill and exposure-wise, this is probably precisely what constitutes a Very Bad Photograph.

But yet I kind of love it.

I think it’s kind of cool, actually, like a sudden explosion lit up the night sky something fierce, and I was lucky enough to catch it as it happened.
But really it was just an explosion of a multitude of fireworks going off simultaneously.

I love fireworks.

It’s entirely possible that they are my raison d’etre of summertime.

Well, that and corn-on-the-cob and grilled meats.

A girl’s got to have her priorities, you know.

*In case you were wondering, this week’s Photo Friday theme, courtesy of Calliope, is “The Night.” Stop by her blog to check out what other bloggers had to say (post) this week! And for the record, I think this has been my favorite PF theme so far. Then again, I think that every week. But no! Really! This one’s my favorite! I swear! So many options, it was hard to choose where to take this. But there I went. Good times.

    I’m not one to care about the technicalities of photo-taking – hell, I ignore aperature and all that, even though my husband has taught me about it a MILLION times!

    So I love this shot for what it is. Kinda funky, and just very cool.
