    Putting this on a T-shirt with one of the Jenner girls’ faces on it. Don’t worry. I’ll send you a check.

    (PS….Can I take this opportunity, Steven, to apologize for being such a twit about “Why are we talking about Spicer?” I just saw your reply on that thread about OTB being a news reaction blog and that was big news. I fear I may have given you the impression that your work was a waste of time and isn’t valued.

    NOT THE CASE AT ALL. While I still think Spicer is/was not very important big picture, you are, of course, absolutely right about the topicality of the subject and its appropriateness here.

    So, apologies. You do great work here and your contributions are appreciated. I doth protest, yes, too much.)

  6. @James Pearce: I appreciate the comment–thanks.

    Very nice. Glad you shared it!

    I like this shot. Fireworks shots without something interesting in the foreground don’t work. Did you put a lot of thought into choosing this location before the show started?

  9. @Todd: I had found the spot the year before and was purposefully going for reflection on the pond.
