The sudden, almost deafening explosions, the children's screams, the flashes of brilliant light and color, the children's delighted laughter as they look to the sky in wonder... It's the 4th of July Celebration experienced by everyone.
It was a good chance to experiment with my camera. My son and I had just finished dinner in town, and when we came out of the restaurant, the fireworks had already started. I had a small window between two street lights and above a very well lit gas station to focus on, and the results were less than optimal, to say the least. These two photos were interesting though.
The spring always gets me wound up and ready to be outside - cabin fever delux, in other words. I blame it on the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont horse races - the Triple Crown - and this year was working up to be an historical one with Big Brown winning the first two prongs of the crown. This brought up several conversations filled with speculation and worry about the current state of the horse industry.
