One Day One World Project: 22:00 – 23:00

Festival Fireworks Finale

During June and July Ludlow holds an Arts Festival and a Fringe Festival with loads of music, poetry, plays, comedy acts and  Shakespeare culminating on the final Saturday (6th July) with a concert in the castle grounds and fireworks.

At 22:30 pm I was up on the top floor of our house with camera and gorillapod, windows flung wide open, listening to the final act which was David Essex. Given that the other stars of the show were Showaddywaddy and Les McKeown’s Bay City Rollers you may understand why I wasn’t at the actual concert. Anyway I didn’t record the songs ‘Gonna Make U A Star’, ‘Stardust’, ‘Oh What A Circus’ (which is the only one that I quite like), and ‘Silver Dream Machine’.

No, I was waiting for the fireworks finale. And at 22:50 the show began:

Lisa of the blog NorthWest Frame of Mind has decided to run a different project over the next 24 weeks. To try to show what is happening in different parts of the world (if you all join in) at a particular time of day. If you would like to participate you have until next Saturday midnight to post a photo or write about what is happening in your part of the world.   This week is between 22:00 – 23:00.  I hope you’ll join in! See links for more details.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

        1. I haven’t been to a firework display in years! Well, no, actually I did attend one last year with the grandchildren as they were helping out on a couple of stalls. I didn’t even see the fireworks properly – all I remember is being cold and then wet! Never again…

        2. If it’s not TOO inclement, and I’m in the UK, I go to ours on the seafront at Seaton. It’s part of my birthday celebration. Next time, I’ll whoop and cheer for you too 🙂

  1. These are better than any fireworks shots I’ve managed. Mind you, I’ve never had a tripod to hand, and once tried on a boat so that was just a waste of pixels! I like the lights trails from the longer exposure in yours.

    1. I rather think night shots are going to fade away until dawn! Maybe I will have to post my dreams – now they can be extraordinary 😉

    1. Thanks Tina, they didn’t come out too badly, though next time I will find a better vantage point and take the larger tripod – and see what that produces. xx
