happy birthday America!

4th of July was on a Monday this year.
So, D & I joined a couple million of our closest friends on the west side for the Macy's 4th of July Fireworks.  We got there late, so we didn't have a great vantage point (lovely construction trailer right there, huh?), but they were really incredible.  I've only ever seen them on TV before, but I definitely want to go again.  I even have a special, secret location picked out.  Shhhhh....

Last week, Branford, Connecticut did their town fireworks and we had a much better vantage point. We wrapped ourselves in blankets and the whole family sat on the beach with the pups.  Another great show.  I got to see at least 3 fireworks displays this year, I'm feeling a little spoiled.  Hope ya'll got your fill of fireworks!  I can't believe we have to wait a whole year to see them again!

you capture, gimme your best shot, fabulous friday, skywatch friday, favorite photo,

gorgeous photos! I'm actually a little jealous and disappointed in myself for not even thinking of snapping fireworks photos!

I assume you mean the celebration...I just sat here thinking, no, it was definitely on Monday. Actually, our fireworks were on Saturday or Sunday and we completely missed it. The other display was on the 4th and it got cancelled due to weather.

Really like all the color and smoke in the first shot.

You did an excellent job of capturing the fleeting beauty of the fireworks!


Planets hurtling through the sky,
Can you tell me one thing: Why
Are you intent on fleeing
Far from human sight and seeing?
