Lovely Landscapes

Happy belated Independence Day to everyone! Our 4th was a little lackluster since the massive storm that rolled through in the evening put a damper on our grilling plans and firework watching, but overall we've had a super relaxing weekend. Having the day off today was wonderful! Not only did we have the day off of work together, but I also had the day off from my Monday night class--the photography class I started taking a few weeks ago at the arts center. To be honest, the class has been a little disappointing so far and I really haven't learned much, but I'm trying to make the most of it anyway. Our assignment over the holiday was to practice our landscape shots and our fireworks photography, both of which I've tried to do over the last few days. I think I captured a few landscapes from our house that were okay.

Unfortunately, since I wasn't about to take my camera outside in the rain last night, I tried setting up my tripod on the kitchen table, but I didn't have much luck at focusing through the screen onto the fireworks. This was the best shot that I got in about 10 tries.

Um, yeah, not so much. I'm afraid I may have failed that photographic assignment!
