The Montgomery Township high school “Cougars” football team performed well last night against the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Raiders.

Montgomery scored 41 to Scotch Plains-Fanwood’s 21.

No. I’m not into football. My daughter is captain of the high school marching band. We go to the home games to support her.

I used a modified version of an ACROS film simulation recipe by Ritchie Roesch. No post-processing noise reduction was used.

I like how Richie’s recipe accentuates the light and dark areas of each image.

My mom came up to visit just in time for our annual attendance at the Montgomery Township United States Independence Day Fireworks at the Montgomery High School. We’ve attended the fireworks since my kids were in elementary school. The colours are spectacular. I love it when the right combination of colours equals the red, white and blue of the USA flag.

In the beginning, it was just me, Bhavna and the kids but over the last few years, we’ve been joined by Bhavna’s family and friends. Our little blanket has grown to a circle of blankets.
