Our little town had it's fireworks last night. I usually don't go in to watch them; but the Grandloves insisted ... so off to town I go. We watched them in the backyard of my daughter Sara's place, sitting up on a really nice hillside. It was a good viewing area; but a little far off from the actual fireworks; but still close enough.
I know I hadn't mentioned it yet; but I got a new camera (a Kodak Z981 - not the camera I was thinking of getting; but I wasn't going to turn it down when Dear Hubby takes me in the store and says he's buying me this camera; just because he loves me ... aww shucks honey, there you go pulling on my heart strings when I don't expect it) ~ so I figured this would be a good time to test it ... trying to capture the fireworks ... which I've tried before with my other camera and never had any success.
Here's the first attempt ... not happy with that :( ... I'm thinking to myself that maybe I'm really not liking this camera.
But after some fiddling around and trying things out :)
The fire works were a lot better than what I got pictures of, and a LOT more of them ... but for a first time attempt at getting firework shots with the new camera ... I was a happy camper.

A quick look at the flowers ~ one of my lilies that's blooming. Well there's a surprise ~ a butterfly wing.
oh geeze ~ another squirrel picture ... are you sick of them yet?
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
