Today was my first July 4th after becoming a permanent resident of the US, and Shraddha’s tenth. We watched the Austin July 4th fireworks for the first time, from the top floor of my company’s parking garage. I had my 200 mm lens at f/4 and ISO 1600 on a tripod in windy conditions (far from ideal, but why not?).
This image is also my blog’s header now. Btw, the archive of past header images of my blog is on the Headers page — it’s worth checking out if you’ve been reading my blog through a feed reader like Google Reader and missing the header images.
There has been something else going on for us over the July 4th long weekend in Austin… a pic or two will follow soon!
