I’m still enjoying the fireworks

(059:  Boom!  Photo © 2009 by Robin)

But I’m not having much fun coming up with titles for the photos.

A little blog business:  I’m finished moving my blogroll over.  If you were on the BH blogroll and don’t see your blog here at the Bogs blog, let me know and I’ll fix that.  I’ve closed BH for good, although I couldn’t bring myself to delete it.  If you still have the link to BH on your blogroll I’d appreciate it if you would remove it and/or changed it over to Life in the Bogs.  Thank you.  🙂

I tweaked today’s photo in Photoshop.  Here is the not-as-tweaked version that includes the smoke (and is cropped a little closer to the fireworks):

I happen to like both of them, but the second one has… well… I can’t tell you.  Then you’ll see it simply because I told you about it.  I’d rather wait and see if any one notices what I noticed.

I had a great day yesterday.  There is no particular reason why.  I felt great.  No aches, no pains, no tummy troubles, no grumpies or grouchies or ouchies of any kind.  It was one of those days I experienced from a sense of joy.  Those kind of days don’t happen often.  I think it’s a good idea to acknowledge them in some way.

Time for me to go enjoy my Saturday.  I hope you enjoy yours, too.

    I’m a bit stymied. Can you be “a bit” stymied? Maybe I see a fluffy puppy face on the second one. Am I close?

  2. That’s OK anhinga, I stared at it from all sorts of angles and other than the second showing more of the smoke trails…I don’t see it either.

    Not see nothing. I mean it’s very pretty.

    Is it Michael Jackson? …or perhaps Jesus? …or perhaps the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz????

    😉

    I know what it is. If you flip it to the mirror image, it says, “Paul is dead.”

    I’m seeing two different things. 1) the smaller grouping appears as Anhinga said, to be a dogs face – like a Bichon Frise. 2) looking all the elements it reminds me of Darth Vader’s head gear with his light sabre.
    Close Robin??

      That’s exactly the kind of dog I was seeing. Of course, it could be Einstein’s hair, but not the rest. Robin is going to let us twist in the wind.

    Love this series of fireworks!! The photoshopping really enhanced the image. Am totally baffled by what it is I’m missing in the original?!?!?

    LOL Well, the comment replies are sure interesting. LOL I really can’t see anything amiss or afoot or different. Both photos beautiful in their own right. Reminds me when I used to get the Highlights magazine when I was a kid, and there were the hidden pictures pictures. Robin, what is it??? 🙂

    Thanks everyone for all your comments and guesses. The answer to this mystery is found in my next post (Sunday Signage).

    I can see why you enjoyed the fireworks for so long. I especially love the colors in these shots, but also the clarity.

    p.s., love the guess about whether it’s Jesus. I vote the Virgin Mary.
