4th of July: thinking of heroes today by lancelonie, on Flickr
This is my daughter, Sophia, in Hancock Park, Los Angeles, juxtaposed to a flag photo I took by a beach in San Diego.

For this year's Independence Day photo, the initial plan was a faceless self-portrait holding a small American flag.  But due to an unsuccessful search on the shelves of the nearest 99cents store, the only hope was to rummage my archives.

My photo edits

The flags were not pictured straight so I had to line the pole by pressing Ctrl+' (that is, control key and apostrophe).  Since they are my focus, Sophia had to lose colors.  Mickey Mouse on her lap had to be cropped out, too.  A related photo is linked below.

After turning little Pia into black and white, I applied a cool filter and adjusted a little bit to match the sky. But the purpose is to not match the tone a hundred percent. Just a little bit tone on tone is just right for me. Finally, I lightened up the exposure so her hair won't appear too dark.

Fourth of July fireworks tonight

Night sky light shows always amaze me; more so with Independence Day fireworks.  Tonight, I look forward to this wonderful amusement.  But for the meantime, share with me a moment of remembering my short story of The 4th Scare 2009.
