love fireworks

The Festival Fireworks end the Festival season with a fabulous display that many in Edinburgh enjoy for free for various vantage points around the city.  The local radio transmits the live concert so that everyone can enjoy the full spectacle, not just those with tickets for the Prince’s street area.

I love fireworks.  I always try to photograph them – taking masses in the knowledge a few will be OK.  When I saw this template pop up on Scrapping with Liz today I knew it would work well for a selection of photos to give an overall impression and not focus on any one photo.


Journaling reads

ending with a BANG and lots of oohs and aahhs. This year we had a perfect vantage point for the Festival fireworks exploding off the castle and listened to the accompanying life music relayed on local radio. Incredible synchronicity between music and pyrotechnics. I remembered to watch and enjoy as well as press the camera shutter !!!

The font for ‘bang’ is Hootie with wow effects applied in PSE.  The rest of the text is j.d. font.

Are you a firework fan and do you attempt photographs of them?

Super page - as you say you get a feel for the fireworks without focussing too much on one photo.
Love the neon effect for the word "BANG" and the contrast of your journalling against the black (with its subtle radiating image).

Love the "bang" font.

Are you reading my mind? I always try to take pictures of fireworks and because I don't plan it not many turn out ok. I took loads last weekend and was wondering how to make a page without showcasing an individual one!
Your page is gorgeous x
