Yesterday the United States of America celebrated its Independence Day commemorating the day the 13 American colonies declared independence from the British empire. The highlight of this holiday is a festive fireworks display celebrated all over the country.  Luckily, I live 5 minutes walk to the beach where my home city’s firework showcase was to be held. It being a last minute decision I ended up not finding my tripod and taking the photos handheld. I enjoyed watching the fireworks display and captured a few decent shots. I am posting 16 shots that I personally like and hope you guys like them too. The settings I used were f/16, 4 seconds and ISO100. Happy 4th of July to all!


Happy Holidays to everyone! By the way, that’s my dog Lily posing for me beside my Christmas tree. She can’t wait to open her gifts in a few hours. Hope everyone is safe and sound at home and with your loved ones.  May this season bring love and joy to you and your families.


Fireworks always add a spark to holiday celebrations but oftentimes, they are the most difficult to capture especially  if you don’t have a tripod with you. Thankfully, the roofdeck of my friend’s condo had a ledge where I was able to rest my camera.  I took a lot of photos but this one turned out to be my favorite. Aside from the fireworks from the distance, this photo also captured the bursts just right in front of the building.
