When walking in Niagara Falls I was just another tourist snapping shots of the falls here and there. I didn't have the time and equipment to get "the perfect shot". And by that I mean nice, silky running water. Also the sky was completely white, therefore there wasn't a rainbow over the falls. So, the only thing in my mind was "what can I do to get a shot different from what is in postcards and different from what everyone was taking. I decided to frame the falls with natural and man-made elements around me. These are the shots I got. All I-phone photos edited in Instagram.

We saw a different Beatles band today called "Ticket to Ride". I took this at the end of the concert.
After the concert I took a photo of the moon. I used the exact same settings as the Westbrook moon, but this time the moon seemed farther away.

Our backyard got a bit neglected this summer. Besides spending a week at the beach we are always on the go. So something had to give. Our vegetable garden didn't get taken care of. We hardly watered it and we absolutely didn't weed it. Still our tomato plants gave us some small tomatoes.
Also when we got our butterfly bush it was so little, but now it is as big as ever. And at some point it got knocked down by one of the hurricanes. Mother Nature is amazing!
There were fireworks in East Hampton tonight. I thought I was super ready when I realized I didn't have my cable release with me. I did have my tripod and settings. Bulb didn't work well so in the middle of the fireworks I was switching to manual. These photos don't do justice to the beautiful display we saw tonight, but it is a pretty good first try. Too bad I don't get to see fireworks often.
