The view from our garden

Some people spend a lot of money to view the New Year’s eve fireworks display from a vantage point. All we had to do was stand in our garden and we watched fireworks shows from different locations — for free. Speedy and Alex took videos. Sam and I took photos. Sam hasn’t shown me her photos; these are from my camera.

But you have to read the rest of the story.

We bought confetti canons and all I really wanted was to take photos of the confetti flying in midair.

After three canisters of confetti and three shots, all I could manage were photos of the confetti on the grass. I think I’ll stick to fireworks photography next time.

All photos were taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and a EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens.
