Long weekend

SparklersThis has felt like a long weekend, with Canada Day on Thursday, and a very quiet work day on Friday. Today we held a small gathering for those wanting to celebrate American independence day. We’ve ended up with almost more food after the event than we had before, despite everyone eating a fair amount.

We struggled to locate sparklers for the event. Several shop assistants didn’t even know what a sparkler was, never mind whether they happened to stock them. Shana eventually located some in a bargain shop and a dollar store.

I’m sure there are other techniques that I could have used for photographing sparklers, but I didn’t have time to experiment much, so I used a 5s exposure and a tripod to produce some fun photos.
