Waiting for Fireworks to Start at an Okinawan Festival

Never Ending Matsuri Season

 

 

It seems like there are too many activities going on to keep tract of, during the summer months.

 In a rush today, preparing for this weekend's nightly events, I discovered something.

A pile of photos from this time, last year, had never been developed.

So, I thought it would be a good idea to show them and explain the rational behind the shots.

Smart photographers, are on the scene, way before the fireworks begin.

The woman, silhouetted in the lower right, of this image, was shooting the setting sun.

Yours truly, got back a little farther and included the moon, in a wide angle composition.

Then, zoomed in to give you a better view.

With, about an hour to kill, before showtime, I decided to take a hike.

The plan was, to get far enough away, to catch fireworks reflecting over water.

The technique, I used, could use some improvement and, I'm working on it this year.

Now, I'm wondering, how that girl in the silhouette (with no tripod) made out !
