"I often use the word "joy" when describing fireworks. It is a considered word, deliberate in choice. Not just amusement, entertainment, astonishment, but joy. Our art makes us all into children again for a while. We become one in our experience for the moment; lost in the sound and color and light. We see large forces, stronger than we could ever be, yet beautiful in their effects. Sometimes violent, sometimes restrained. Delicate beyond imagination at times, coarse and rude at others."

A wonderful quote. As I read it my mind flashed back to a memory and a photo I captured of that memory. 2 small children sitting on the curb with their faces turned upward gazing into the sky watching the fireworks with such joy on their face.

Perfect quote for those pictures. My husband and I are trying to get comfortable with a camera we bought. We want to learn how to capture fireworks like you have in the pictures - those are AMAZING! Do you ever blog about how you work your camera?
