It's kind of a given that anyone with even the slightest bit of shutterbug lurking within them will have their camera out and at the ready for their local fireworks on the Fourth of July. No one can resist trying to get a unique shot of something so fun and beautiful to photograph…and who can blame them?! Imperial Beach, the town I [still] reside in just south of San Diego, had their first firework show this year. They set off the rockets from the pier and everyone gathered on the beach to watch them light up the sky. I'll admit, it was one of the better shows I've seen in my time. I, liked every other camera-wielding individual out there, took quite a few shots of the show, but this one was my favorite.
Whenever I go through my archives of photos I inevitably find a few here and there that I never edited and shared for some reason or another. This is a shot from last August when I took my camera surfing with me. I've been craving some surf action lately and have been waiting anxiously for the water to get a little warmer so that I can tolerate it. This photo definitely made me want to get back out there and catch some waves.
In a continuing effort to update my photo blog more, I'll be digging through my archives for the little gems I let get past me the first time I edited through. This photo is from my thirty days of travel last September. It was taken right here in Imperial Beach, where I now live. During the few days I stayed here was also when I made the decision to move here in January. Not a bad choice.
