Fourth of July

After a miserable attempt at taking pictures with smoke bombs last year (pro tip: don't buy them from the dollar store), I found myself doubly determined to use them for a photo shoot this summer. Last week I found myself driving to Wisconsin from Chicago, bombarded with a billboard for fireworks stands at nearly every exit. I took it as a sign, pulled over, and bought as many smoke bombs as the stand had in red, white, and blue. Although we were short on time because of a storm rolling in, this first attempt was more than successful (not to mention fun!). Now I just need to find some seniors willing to use colorful smoke in their senior photos... :)
