So the Kings County fair was like a week ago I think. I went one night and as I was thinking of leaving to go home. I ran into one of my friends that I work with. He told me that his band "Born of the Sun" was playing at the battle of the bands, a show that they had at the fair, that night. It was around 7:30 when I saw him and they where going on at 10. So I thought that now I would have to sit threw some pretty bad local bands to see his, I was right. As they came on, I was a little hesitant, but they turned out to be pretty good, I hope that they won, I didn't stick around for the end.

Aaron and Holly are an amazing couple. Holly is my cousin and asked that I would come up for her wedding and do the photography for it. All I can say is that I was completely honored to be there and hanging out with some family that I don't get to see that often, it was truly a blessing. Even thou it was a very small wedding, I did something that has never happened, Aaron, the groom, picked me up from the hotel and drove me to the wedding. It was truly humbling and awesome, we where talking about geek stuff like computers and tv shows on the way there, fun times. Thank you Aaron and Holly.

I hope everyone had an amazing 4th living in a free country. We are so blessed.
I did what I wanted to do, my parents and I went to the Hanford bowl and sat with some friends and watched the fireworks. We sat with who I like the call the cool people (Vickers, Martins) and Joesph, and Roger. It was an awesome time.
Now to the pictures. There are some ways that you can shoot fire works. You can have you camera on a tripod and just shoot. Like the first picture. Or another ya that I like to do, is just hold the camera and have it on bulb setting to just record everything.
What I did for some of these as I was exposing, I zoomed in and out, to give the lines more crazyness, is what you might call it. I was just going nuts, trying different things.
To be honest, when ever I see fireworks I am reminded of that scene in "The sandlot" when they are trying to play a night game. But they can't because they always stop to watch the fire works. I wanted to shoot, but I found myself just stopping and watching the awesome show.

Only read this is you want to know the truth about professional wrestling. Not really the truth, just stuff.
Well, there is not much to tell about it, if you are into it, you should go, you most defiantly get your moneys worth, The event was 4 hours long.
I never thought about much about wrestlers, they run around and it is all planed out. But here is the kicker, they film these events for the shows every week. So they film about three weeks worth of events, so this one fighter fought three times. It was weird to see a fighter talk about last weeks fight, when in all reality, it happened 30 minuets ago.

So Monday as I was on lunch from Jury Duty, I was driving back while the radio dj said I could win if I could figure out what year these things where involved with. I listened to them not knowing, then he said, "and last, this year the movie The Crow came out." So I called not thinking that I would get threw, the phone picked up and I said 94'. I won tickets to the WWE smackdown in Fresno last night. I use to be into wrestling when I was allot younger, but now, more into other things. It was a fun time and the whole event lasted 4 hours. I will write more on later posts.
