P. S. Hayley and I are renovating Art Lab! We’re adding a few more artists to the group and starting it up again. We’re also going to collect and repost all of the Art Lab posts onto the official Art Lab blog, so you can scroll through the posts with ease. 🙂 You can follow it if you like! Hopefully there will be an Art Lab post up tomorrow. 😀

Boom, Crackle, Bang!

Did you have a good 4th of July (if you live in the USA)? I did! I watched fireworks twice and took pictures of them once. 😀 I used a tripod this time which helped SO much. Enjoy some pretty explosions!

I love this one! You can see the mountain and fireworks coming from it.

I love this one too!

Did you like them? I think they might be my best firework photos yet. A tripod really helps!


P. S. I might just keep my blog design how it is. I like my header and the background so yeah. 😀 I also made a new button that looks kind of like my header. You can update it if you want! (It’s on my Buttons page.)

P. P. S. It’s Nicole’s turn for WordCrafters!

P. P. P. S. Whoa this is a lot of P. S.’s! We are nearly finished redecorating our room and it looks so PRETTY!!


We saw the fireworks at Massanutten recently, and I took some pictures while we were watching (of course :))2014-7-5-Allison (Fireworks) 0332014-7-5-Allison (Fireworks) 0372014-7-5-Allison (Fireworks) 0412014-7-5-Allison (Fireworks) 015  I discovered that if I waved my camera around while I took a picture, I ended up with these neat light streaks.2014-7-5-Allison (Fireworks) 0312014-7-5-Allison (Fireworks) 0242014-7-5-Allison (Fireworks) 025

It worked the same way when we waved around glow sticks.
