A few minutes ago, we stood on the driveway watching the fireworks on the oval across the valley. It was the cricket club’s Christmas party and after Santa arrived in the fire truck with complete with sirens and flashing red and green lights and after the carols and band, the loudspeaker ordered parents to supervise their children. I zoomed into the stage then tried to capture the scene with a handheld camera. It was hard to get settings right for fireworks and the shutter seemed to be too slow, which made the sky look lighter and amplified my hand movement. Next year, I’ll try to set up a tripod, but at least these shots give you the idea.
Wishing our 107 followers a happy Christmas with these photos from the backyard party at our son’s a couple of days ago. The bubble machine made for some happy snaps.
This afternoon we set up the Christmas tree with our two granddaughters.
