Red sky at night?
Only I’m nowhere near a body of water, and I don’t sail.
Spotted this at the end of the Worth Days Parade. The only thing missing was Jake and Elwood.

Fireworks over the neighborhood tonight.
Our town is celebrating Summer’s Last Blast.
Tabasco. In a tiny, tiny bottle. Just perfect for oyster happy hour.

I admire people who can take good candid street portraits. It is not my strong point, but I have been trying to learn. In general, I don’t think people like the idea of a stranger taking their picture, and my own desire not to get caught limited my abilities. This resulted in a lot of pictures of the backs of peoples heads, although sometimes you get lucky and people turn just enough to show their faces.
But I was really not content with just sneaking up on people, and I had to overcome the fear of being caught.
It takes a lot of patience, and a quick finger, because people who are not aware you are taking a picture will make unexpected and quick movements.
I may not be great at it yet, but I think I am getting the hang of it.
