Remember: only one image each week!A good Nikon Wednesday to you all, and a slightly belated happy Independence Day if you're here in the US. I hope we'll see a few long-exposure fireworks shots this week, from Monday's celebration. I didn't get out to capture the pyrotechnics myself this year. Instead, I'll share this formal portrayal of a thoughtful man's nod to the traditions of our colonial past, and his more revolution-minded horse's serious, sober engagement in the spirit of things. Used your Nikon gear to record some recent festivities? Share a photo!
