Foto Finish--Patriotic

This week's Foto Finish theme is:  Patriotic

Here's my entry:


A few years ago, I set my camera up on a tripod during our fireworks celebration over the Willamette River, and I used my shutter remote to click off one picture after another.  Most weren't worth saving, but I did get a few winners.  This is one of my favorites.  I think I might try doing that again this year and see what I get.  Taking those images off my camera was like opening the most wonderful surprise!

For next week's theme, I think I'll choose something very general.  As always, you can interpret the theme any way you like.  Next week's theme will be:

Summer Fun

Now I'm ready for your Patriotic images.  Have a wonderful 4th of July!  Here's Mr. Linky:

Gorgeous shot! Fireworks are so hard to capture via camera.

Grr. I was able to upload a picture the first week of this. I remember shortly after I uploaded the ocean pictur you said that you were having a problem with mr. linky, and that it was fixed, and ever since then, I haven't been able to upload. Every time I try, i just get a "missing image" message from Mr. Linky!

Great fireworks shot Barbara!!

So far I've been unsuccessful in taking one - the colors never show up. Yours is just spectacular!

My shot is from April of this year & was the very first one I thought of when I saw what this week's topic was going to be. :D
