Warning – photo overload ahead!
These photos were taken on July 4th – coincidentally my mother-in-law’s and my cousin-in-law’s birthdays (is “cousin-in-law” a thing? lol). Of course I wanted to go patriotic with my outfit, but unfortunately I forgot to pack something red.
Oh no! What’s a girl to do?!
Then I remembered my new red bike pin. As I was grabbing it from my bag, a red hair tie fell out. Crisis averted!
As I mess with camera settings, I always use Dave for test-shots. He usually just stands there, putting up with me (haha), but every once in a while I get a GREAT face:
Love it! 🙂
There were fireworks on the beach that night, so I brought my camera and tripod to try to get some good photographs. Boy, was this difficult! The wind was coming towards us, so each firework that went off caused smoke to obstruct our view. By the end of the show, we could only see a huge smoke cloud and about 1/5th of each firework.
Though not the look I was going for, I have to admit that some of the shots came out kind of cool:
Annual family photo on the steps of the house:
The view of the bay from the houses down the road:
My parents and grandma decided to drive down from Long Island for a day, and we loved walking down the boardwalk! I just love this sweet pic of mom and grandma:
Boardwalk carnival rides:
(Not sure why, but he appears to be in pain…)
I also wanted to try some long-exposure shots – these two are my favorites:
Haha, love the little skeleton crawling on the roof!
Hope you are having a great week 🙂
