I hope your Independence Day had as much laughter as ours did. We spent the day creating lots of memories at the parade I’ve attended since I was a child and then hanging out with family and friends. We also read through Patrick Henry’s “Liberty or Death” speech which I would highly recommend to stir the patriotic soul. The day was capped with fireworks and fierce candy negotiations between my daughters and their grandpa.
I also stretched my photo taking skills and finally learned how to take photos of light trails using bulb mode. I’ve had this camera for years and had no idea that if I just turned my shutter speed to the left farther and farther it would take me down to levels that leave the shutter open for 10-15-30 or more seconds!
Now that I’m ready to sort all of these memories into some CocoPolka albums, I created six patriotic covers to customize them. I’ve attached them here as a free download for signing up for my mailing list (don’t worry, I’ll rarely send anything – I’ll just let you know about new downloadable cover designs, sales and new products). Just get them printed like you would any photo and replace the cover. Enjoy!
