Happy Independence Day

For those of you who are Americans, have a great Independence Day.

In my part of the country, the only fireworks we will be enjoying are photographs. Due to the drought, there are burn bans and emergency orders against fireworks and any sort of burning. I don’t like the noise, so I won’t really miss them this evening. Still, it seems odd to have an Independence Day celebrations without fireworks and sparklers.

For those of you readers who are not Americans, have a great Wednesday.

    • Thanks. I took this shot two years ago at my niece’s wedding reception — it was only time I’ve been to a professional but private 4th of July firework display. Shot wasn’t too bad considering that I didn’t have a tripod, and wearing formal dress and heels, I wasn’t exactly able to go out into a field to get the best shot.
