Starting the weekend with a bang

So, it’s not actually the weekend yet, but I’m sure most of us wish it was.

 A little premature, I know.  But the city I live in put on its annual fireworks show this past Sunday.  I haven’t been to this particular show in about seven years, and had forgotten just how good a job they do.

My sister-in-law bought a house just a block from the field where they shoot them off, and she had her first annual fireworks party that night.  It was a perfect spot.

I’d never photographed fireworks before, so when I decided to try, I was a little taken back by how good they turned out.

It did take quite a bit of tweaking during the whole show, but it was fun!

    Great pictures! Was that at the Spree? I’d never heard of it until this year, my boyfriend’s fromt hat side of town so everyone was talking about it. Happy 4th of July!

    I love fireworks! We are going Saturday night to see them at the lake where my parents live. I would not have thought they would photograph so well!
