Happy President’s Day to all of the Americans out there!
Not a fancy pic (in my eyes) but I liked it out of my latest fireworks shots, so I wanted to use it as a daily photo. Discussion over the next few days will be a bit sparse, due to family visiting, but I’ll post and leave a quick msg for all! Hope you enjoy the photo today.
See my website, flickr and/or facebook for more images to admire!
*Reminder that my BIG February deal (half off a classic 11×14 or that amt off a more expensive print) ends tonight at midnight, Mountain Time (US). Look at http://www.kelleybard.com if you are interested. PLUS, if you are the 1000th visitor you will get a FREE print (and that thousandth number is creeping closer, I get a few visitors daily and I’m only about 20 off right now!).*
Not much to say on this one… just sending out a heartfelt (if cheesy and a bit giggly) wish for all to have some fireworks on their Valentine’s Night!
(This pic is the entire finale for the Snowdown 2011 Fireworks Show. Maybe a bit small, but it was nice because you can see all of the trails and explosions… and they kept it all so nicely close together!
See more of my work at http://www.kelleybard.com. Happy Valentines Day!
More fireworks shots, I have a few more that jumped out at my from this last show at Snowdown 2011 in Durango, CO. This one was just weird, the way the sparks flew and the colors match and all… it’s an image of a flower and leaves. Totally nuts. Otherwise I’ll get out and get some new images soon… I just got a bunch of new equipment (great lights) and once I get my new show put up at the Red Tent Women’s Center I will be all ready to get out and take new shots!
This is in my “Things and Community Events” gallery on http://www.kelleybard.com… and please, if you have a better name for me, share it! I’m dyin’ here.
Also shown on flickr and facebook. Enjoy all my work, wherever you see it.
*Question: Does anyone use Creative Commons licensing for their photography? I’m always interested in it… don’t know if I want to let my work be out there so freely, but then at least it’s getting out there… other’s experiences with this? Would be nice to know.
My town has this all-out, end the winter crazies weekend event called Snowdown. Pretty fun, with lots of things to thrill every kind of person (mostly it’s a weekend party for the bar crowd, but even us family types get to enjoy a bit with all the kid friendly events now). This year I made it to the light parade, hot air balloon launch and fireworks show. My camera and I were going strong at each, and for the next week or so I’ll probably be posting a lot of images from the events. I was in experimental mode with the fireworks show, and it paid off with some interesting shots (We were located below and to the left of the set-off point, and the wind was blowing pretty strongly to the left as well, so the images came out as not your normal fireworks shots). This is pretty much as is from the camera- I did a bare amount of touching up in Photoshop and sharpening and cropping, but that was about it.
I really like this one. It’s already on my website, http://www.kelleybard.com. I’m hoping to get good reviews of it here, on flickr and facebook. Come back for more fireworks and balloon shots, and a few interesting light parade images too!
BTW, the name… probably self explanatory. I can’t stop thinking of the dandy-lion in the old Alice and Wonderland Disney cartoon. So there you go.
