Happy birthday, America!

Even though I took a few shots on New Years Eve in Philadelphia -- sans tripod from someone's apartment -- last night was the first time I've attempted to legitimately photograph fireworks. Much more difficult than I thought it would be, the settings I initially went with did not create the effect that I was going for.

After playing around a bit and finally getting something I was happy with (the shots below), the show was unfortunately nearing its end. Next year, I'll be sure to set up nice and early, bring my remote and get everything figured out before the show begins -- but until then, these will have to do.

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend... I sure as hell did.
