Oh what a night!

What a fun photo-taking safari that was! Last night we drove down to the Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival. We got there in time to visit the quilt gallery and a friend who was busy sewing up a storm. Then we took off with just enough time to buy a bag of kettle corn. We scouted out along the bluff and found an unobscured spot to watch the fireworks! I used my little Lumix camera and spun it onto my backpackers tripod. I rested two of the tripod legs on a guardrail in front of the bluff, and so I guess I served as the third leg of the tripod. I set the camera for 'fireworks' and that was that! I was absolutely thrilled to come home and see my photos! And now that I have photographed ferris wheels and fireworks, I figure,... all I have to do is photograph a 'drop of water' and then I will be a real photographer!
Head on over to my photostream on Flickr to see each of the fireworks individual photographs!
