Hello 2008! DP Theme Day: Best Shot of 2007


Happy New Year Everybody! Another year has come. I spent the eve with many old friends and it was a blast. And here I am, back to posting daily.

It was tough choosing a photo that could represent the best of this past year. I narrowed it down to shots that had the most positive comments, shots that made me happiest when I took them and shots that said something about the state we're in. After a week of thought, I chose this one. Fireworks shot in celebration of a great city.

In this new year, we should celebrate all that is good and fair. Believe in the love that surrounds us. Be patient and work towards a better place for every living being. If I could, I'd set off fireworks as a reminder that life is for celebrating. Enough of the bad crap. It's time to smile.

Join 118 DP members around the world as we celebrate the blessings and happiness of our Earth.

Now, I'm no stranger to photos of fireworks, but this one just smacks me across the face. (In a good way.) It's huge and tightly cropped and in no uncertain terms says, "Hey! I am a giant firework! Look at me!!!"

Nicely done.

Happy new year!

Wow! How did you do that? You must have a great camera to capture fireworks that way.

I look forward to visiting your blog more often this 2008. And you're welcome to mine, too! For some reason, my link was not included in the participating blogs for the 1st of January 2008 theme day. Sorry I wasn't able to visit your blog sooner. I was in transit the whole of yesterday. I am now back in Norwich after the most fantabulous time at home in Manila.

Happy New Year to you and everyone you hold dear!
