Fireworks 2012

Another attempt at taking firework pictures, at the end of the Edinburgh Festival. Still not great, but at least there were one or two that were "ok". And my battery didn't die, as it did last time I tried this.

My dog died last Friday. He'd been showing his age, and his back legs had been getting noticeably weaker over the last six months. The dog that could clear a four foot high wall from a standing start now had to be lifted in and out of the car. On Friday, he could no longer stand, so it was time to say goodbye.

As well as being a great pet, and until recently a very effective way of keeping fit, he was a great photography subject.

Star Shot

Ok, these aren't actually stars. It's Jupiter and Venus, shot from the decking at the back of my house.


The GLW bought herself some flowers (she must have done something to upset herself), and the sun was falling nicely on the roses in the kitchen window. Ran this through photoshop, and added some hard light to increase the contrast.
