No Flash, Hand-Held Off-Camera Flash- Sparklers in the Rain for One

Thanks to everyone who sent birthday greetings.  Nothing like announcing “Hey, it’s my birthday” publicly and then being the recipient of such lovely wishes.

Rain kept us from going to see fireworks Thursday night.  Anna had her Pap light a sparkler or two and she tired  to enjoy them in the rain in the front yard.

For the second day in  a row I took the photos from the porch.  It was totally dark.

The first photo was taken without a flash but there was some light from the house and the sparkler.

The second was taken with hand-held off-camera flash. Thought i would experiment as I read about it but never really tried it. I avoid using the flash as much as possible but wanted to experiment for some different dramatic lighting effects. Thanks Anna you were most cooperative.

The cord I bought about 9 years ago and never really used.  I will try it again when I have some more willing subjects.
