Happy Independence Day everyone!
Spent a lovely evening with family and friends at an event put on by my sister’s old preschool. Bethel church presents “Celebrate America!”. They packed out the Shoreline amphitheatre in Mountain View and really put on a show. Best of all it was free! There was a huge lawn area where everyone was allowed to bring food for their own picnic before the show. Really amazing turnout and knowing everybody who was working the show were volunteers really had me blown away. It was a night full of patriotic songs, constitution readings, memorials and tributes for our fighting troops, and a brief brief message of love, freedom, & grace. To top off the night, the show ended in fireworks that were surprisingly close!
For a great tutorial on how to shoot fireworks, head over to here! I took his advice and ended up snapping a few, forgot a tripod so ended up getting a lot of waviness but all in all learned a few things. Enjoy yours and be safe!
