Another year, another 4th of July. Kids having ice-creams and the fireworks display. Here are some of the images. Not as exciting as last year's, where a storm was coming and I was able to catch at the same time fireworks and lightning on the same shot. But anyway, fireworks are always cool.
I also made a couple of videos of the fireworks. First, I was just recording them withe the lens focused on them of course. But towards the end, I focused the lens I was using to the shortest distance and it rendered the fireworks totally out-of-focus. After viewing the videos later on the computer, I did not find the "regular" in-focus videos as exciting as watching the fireworks live. But the out-of-focus video version is indeed cool and I have included it below.
