Let's see if this madness will work now.

Here is a tree. It's a sycamore tree. It's big, and has gnarly roots that dip into the river. Some kids have nailed boards up the length of it, so you can climb out onto it and jump into the river.

And here is a firework. "Firework" is funny singular. Is this a firework, or is this fireworks? Either way, it is loud, and bright, and I like it.

And this, this right here, is a cold, wet, miserable mouse. Look at him swimming around in someone's nasty-ass abandoned diet coke. You see what happens when you litter? You cause misery. Don't litter. Littering is bad.

And this is the I-71 bridge that goes over the Little Miami, roughly between Cincinnati and Columbus. It's the highest bridge in the state. A couple years ago, some lady jumped off it. She died in the tall grasses behind the trees in this picture. I'm hoping she wasn't aiming for the river. If she was, she missed. And anyway, it's only two and a half feet deep there.

Okay. I am pleased that the photo tool works again. Perhaps I won't have to abandon blogger after all.

I take it you were tripod-ed (is that a word?) for the firework picture... what speed film/exposure were you using? Or is you one of dem fancy-schmancy newfangled digital type people?I've always wanted to photograph fireworks but have also unfortunately been in places where I'm convinced the light pollution would ruin the picture.

Believe it or not, all my pictures are taken with a busted-ass Nikon Coolpix 2100 (i.e., bottom of the line digital cam, they don't even make crap that clunky and low-MP anymore) that's held together by medical tape (it took a flight of concrete stairs right in the lens, and also went swimming). Give fireworks photography a shot. You might be surprised.
