What does this look like?
I thought it looked like a nebula, or a magellanic cloud. When I took some haphazard photos of the fireworks on Saturday, I didn't expect any of them to turn out properly so I was super excited when I opened this one on my computer! Funnily enough the combination of the visible smoke and fast shutter speed which made my photos turn out like this is exactly the opposite of what you are generally supposed to do when taking photos of fireworks? Which is incredibly lucky as I had NO IDEA what I was doing on the night.
But yes, this photo makes me happy, partly because I'm in love with space images (I may or may not have 8 or so posters plastered on my walls...) and partly because I love fireworks. That snap crackle sound pretty much makes my heart skip a beat without fail. So beautiful...
Anyway, here are the rest of them:
Sorry, still doesn't do them justice at all but thinking about fireworks just gives me goosebumps. Fireworks remind me of so many beautiful memories with so many beautiful people, it reminds me of lying on the grass in summer, my family laughing and that blissful moment on New Years when the whole crowd looks up, completely silent as the sky explodes. That has to be my favourite day of the year, it never loses its magic for me. I can't wait.
