Foster City Independence Day 2013 (Long Exposures and Sunset Part 1)

Independence Day, or Fourth of July, is a federal holiday where Americans celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence in July 4th, 1776 which declared the US independence from Great Britain. Many Americans (and non-Americans) celebrate by shooting off and watching fireworks, having barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, political speeches, and many other activities. I spent the 2013 4th of July in Leo J. Ryan Park at Foster City, CA. I took photos of the fireworks, the event, and some scenery. I will be splitting the photos of this event into several blog posts. If you would like to see 2012 (last year) fireworks show in Foster City, you can check it out here.

Today I have long exposure and sunset shots from the event. These photos will be split into 2 parts. The rest of the photos will come next time.

After walking around with my Joby Gorillapod Focus, I decided to take out my real giant tripod setup and my ND filter for some long exposures of people walking by. The lake is Central Lake.

Another few long exposures. The lake is Central Lake.

 Long exposure at the live performance at the amphitheatre. The lake in the background is Central Lake.

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed viewing them. Next time I will continue with the last of my long exposure and sunset photos.
