Baby you're a firework....

Went to my brother-in-law's house out in the sticks where it's legal to shoot off fireworks. Before dark Hyper Boy played some Xbox with his cousin. Well, sort of cousin. My brother-in-law's wife's sister's son. Cousin works, right? They played online the night before for the first time and became fast friends, hugging when they met in person... we hadn't been out there in 2 years, so the boys didn't really know each other.


And we got to see the newest addition to our clan....

Then it got dark and we unleashed our inner pyromaniac....




And Hyper Boy got to fire off some big booms for the first time this year. He took his responsibility very seriously.


Thanks Uncle J and Aunt M for having us out!

Good article...

Came across a good article. Not that anyone follows my blog.

http://www.petapixel.com/2012/07/03/common-photographic-mistakes-by-beginners-amateurs-and-pros-and-how-to-avoid-them/

Amen to this one...
"Worrying too much about gear. This usually takes the form of hauling around everything you own for every shoot and believing a new piece of equipment will solve some deficiency in your images that can almost always be traced back to photographic skill, or more specifically, the lack thereof."

Own up to your bad images and stop blaming the camera.
