Project 52 – Week 27 – Patriotic #Project52Photos

Project 52 - Patriotic (2)

Welcome to Project 52. One theme, one photo, once a week. Simple. I hope this project will help you grow as a photographer. Amy, Sarah and I are going to co-host this link up each week. Each of us will pick a favorite from the previous link up to share each week.

I knew that this last week’s theme could be fun.  But since we didn’t make any plans this 4th, which was super nice, we went back to our kabob tradition on the 4th and enjoyed it.  It was a lazy normal day for us, but still nice.

Last week’s theme of haze was fun to look back on seeing how people captured in a different aspect.  As always is my way though before diving into sharing my photo from this week’s theme of Patriotic, I want to share my personal favorite from those that linked up last week for haze.

My favorite this last week came from Kandi over at Sweet Country Chaos, she did several different shots for the theme, so you are just going to have to pop on over to her actual post too to see her other 3 that I didn’t snag.

Project 52 – Week 27 – Patriotic

First, I hope you all had a great 4th of July.  I was a little in a panic on the days around the 4th and the actual 4th because we are so very dry around here and was quite fearing a fire.  I soaked down our yard the night before and soaked down the yard again all day on the 4th.  There were several different fires that happened around the 4th too around here and it was just scary.  So I have to say that I didn’t enjoy the fireworks at all this year though I tried to sit outside with Jason for a bit to enjoy them, but it wasn’t happening.  

Roxy was having none of it this year either and ended up going upstairs to our bedroom by herself, twice.  And if you know her, she refuses most of the time to go up the stairs by herself, she is scared of them.  She, I would assume, felt safer up in bed.

    that is a great picture of you. I love the fireworks picture. Trigger was so scared of the fireworks too. He ran and hid for them.

    • Thanks April, it’s not my favorite, but it did for the theme if I couldn’t get any other shots. lol Funny enough they normally don’t bother Roxy, so I am not sure what was up with her this year.

    It was fun to be able to link up again. I had some photos that I hadn’t posted anywhere else because they were on my regular camera instead of my phone. Anyway. Thank you.

    I love your pic of the fireworks, so clear, and fun! 4th of July was kind of cool, we didn’t have to leave our own backyard to see the sky all lit up, which is a first.

    • Thanks Rose and am so excited you linked up again!

      We were upset we couldn’t seem to catch most of the fireworks in time. Happy enough that Jason got the two he did.

        I’m a snap happy photographer. I just snap incessantly until I get a handful to choose from, real quick like. I actually only got one clear one of the fireworks, the rest were of our sparker experiments.

  • Kandi

    Thank you for the feature! I love your fireworks pictures. I am so glad I can do this each week. It is keeping me behind my camera which is something I have been struggling with!

    • You are so welcome, loved it!!! I love having a theme each week, I have to think out of the box quite often.
