Fun with Farklers on the Fourth

Cameron was a good sport and decided to help me and try something fun with sparklers (Maren calls them farklers). It was hot outside and mosquitoes were everywhere. He thought, when I asked him, that I was going to be bossy about how I wanted to do it. By the end, he was having fun and we used up all the sparklers. We also found out, he is very bad at cursive writing. (Anerica!) Just kidding. He says that he hasn't written in cursive since the 3rd grade. Plus, it's a little bit hard to know what you are writing in the air.

I also wanted to get a shot of all the firefly's in the backyard. It's the coolest thing. It looks like a ton of twinkly lights all along the grass. But, Cameron was done by then. Oh well.


Can I get an "Ahhhhhhh"?

That is so amazing and cool! Can I ask what your camera settings were?

Hey Summer. My settings were f/2.5, 8 sec, iso 200.
It was really fun. We were thinking of getting more to let the kids have a turn.

Stephanie, YOUR ARE MAGIC. I don't even know how your did this. It looks like it involved math, physics, creativity or some gift from the dark side.
