I played with my Canon DSLR camera on July 4th and tried to take some photographs of the fireworks we watched that night. I braced the camera on my knee to take the photos and think that if I would have had a tripod they would have been better. I didn’t know what settings to use so just experimented and got the following photos. Anyone that knows what settings to use on a DSLR camera please let me know and I will print them and put it in the camera bag for the next time. Still Interesting shapes and colors even though they are blurry.
It was such a beautiful evening with no wind and the town had sprayed for mosquitoes so they weren’t too big of a problem. We did spray with mosquito repellant though to keep the few that were looking for a meal away. One interesting thing we saw just before the fireworks started and it was almost dark was a bat. Yes, a bat was flying erratically up and down the street where we were sitting. It would change directions quickly then off in another direction just as quickly. I presume it was eating those pesky mosquitoes and other bugs. I don’t think I have ever seen a bat flying before.
