    We're really good at blowing stuff up too...

    We have a huge fireworks display right in the middle of downtown. That is lightning in the background and I think I have some better ones with lightning on film - but that will have to wait. This spot I planned to be at since last year - which is the top of a six story parking garage. Not as great as I hoped, but I also looked at a spot on the river. I wanted a reflection, but the wind direction didn't work. Try that one next year. A couple other shots - the motorcycle parade and another one that hopefully doesn't require explanation. Hope everyone had a great 4th!

    Seems to be a lot of shuffling from foot to foot in that last one. Nice work on the fireworks. Looking forward to seiing the lighning shots.

    The last shot

    The last shot is kind of funny! I can relate. Who hasn't had to wait in long lines for the porta-potty? I like the motion blur and the arial view.

    I like that last one...

    ALOT! Usually when you see motion blur it's not with sunset light That's a different feel. I like it. I'm also anxious to see your lightening shots.

    I thought last night how great it would be to see the moon hanging in the distance with the fireworks in front of them - maybe in my lifetime I'll get to see that

    Thanks for sharing
