Firework #2


My selection for my 2nd favorite photo of 2008 is this firework photo that was originally posted back on July 6th. I really liked the way several of my firework photos turned out (I took them from several blocks away behind a line of trees that blocked all ground level lights)...

I was honored several months ago when I received an email from a computer programmer/web designer who requested to use one of my photos (this one) as a background for the website of the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary!! The guy just happened to also be in charge of the fireworks display here in Terrell every year -- and he could recognize this firework as one of the ones he loaded and set off =) He also offered me some backstage access for next July's firework display where I can take pictures during their setup and during the show!

Anyway - I was excited to receive some positive feedback and honored for someone to want to use one of my photos on a website without my begging and pleading =) So, this is my number 2 photo for 2008..... HAPPY NEW YEAR'S TO ALL!!!!
