Happy Birthday Robert!

Robert is 40 today!!! Yippee!!!! To celebrate, here are some fireworks, h/t Colossal. These are long exposure photographs, but the twist is that the photographer started the shot out of focus, then focused once the explosion started.

I could draw an analogy between these photos and a life well lived, how it's all a combination of breathtaking clarity and soft focus, and a trust in the long view of things.

Eh, never mind. Just enjoy...
