I had grand plans of taking firework photographs this weekend. I even read up on how to best photograph fireworks. And then, we had Shane's aunt's funeral to attend the evening of July 3rd, so fireworks were out that night. Then July 4th came around and it totally would've been a great time for me to take photos of fireworks, except that, well, there were various reasons why I was not wielding a camera.
Instead, I have a picture of this purple daisy that makes me think of a firework, because of the way the petals explode from the center. ALSO, purple daisies signify dignity and pride, which could also relate to having pride in one's country. Did you know that? I didn't, until I looked it up to try and justify using this picture for You Capture. As you can see, I have succeeded.
