So, honestly... I have not done a lot for this week, haha. owo; I had two days where almost I have done nothing but sleep (maybe I'm getting sick?), there was Tanabata and the July 4th fireworks (and I wanted to spend most of that time taking pictures of fireworks which was not very challenging)... so... it's just been a busy week.

But, I did get more pictures that I liked, this time! It's just that I didn't take one every day.

These are from the same photoshoot, obviously. They're not different "color effect" filters, but, just different exposures. The street lights in the park made a light leak in the second one.

your tired, your poor, your huddled masses

Your tired, your poor, your huddled masses. Things that July 4th is not really about.

after firework

This is not a firework... it's the smoke after the firework! It's hard to capture this, but, I got one lucky shot, so I turned up the contrast and I think it makes a really lovely picture.

festival feeling

This is my favorite. I don't know why, but it is. It just came out exactly like I wanted it, and it captures the atmosphere of the evening so well. It really has a feeling of nostalgia and celebration to me...

Oh my gosh, that first one is beautiful. Really, I love the first two and seeing the difference between them. It's so interesting to me how exposure can change things, and it's something I've been (unsuccessfully) playing with on my camera.

And that last one has gorgeous lighting and colors. Perfect.

I love the first two, holy crap. I stared at them for a loooong time. >.>

And the third one is strangely haunting and creepy. All the half-seen people! It reminds me of someone trying to look under the veil at a celebration, or something. Or maybe from the other side of the veil looking at our celebration. I think it's the little bits of glowsticks one can see in the masse that does it.

I also just generally love the light in all of these. It's so hard to capture the gloaming light in photos, and these get it really well!

Yess! :D The gloaming is pretty much my favorite time of day ever (either just before the sun comes up or just after it goes down, really, both gloamings are good but have different energies) and...yes. It's lovely when there are people out in it, or when one is just enjoying it oneself. Everything is blue. (This is probably a major part of why I like it, other than it being analogous to the spiritual spaces I feel most comfortable in. Liminal spaces ftw.)

The first one feels like a lonely place at the end of time, and the wires are maybe silent.
