Project #149 - Long Exposure Sparker Pictures

Saralinda purchased a sweet basket of fireworks to set off at the party last night. After we set everything off and woke up the neighbors we were left with two boxes of sparklers.

Sparklers might not flare or make whizzing noises, but I like them quite a bit because they can be used to spell things. We settled on the "NO 'H' SARA" message because Saralinda has difficulties getting some of her relatives to spell her name correctly. As an Alison, a name with at least a dozen different spellings, I totally sympathize.

I've made a few of my friends do this before, so most of them knew the sparkler writing drill. We lined everyone up and had them wave their sparklers in the shape of the letter they each were assigned while I took an 8 second exposure with my camera. The results weren't bad for a group of people who had been drinking for four hours or more.

Yes, we are grownups.
