Happy Fourth of July!

Just some ordinary Township-sponsored fireworks –

at the high school football field

down at the end of my street

photographed with my little point and shoot camera

set on manual so the flash wouldn’t try to light up the fireworks

with no tripod (as you can see)

though some of the motion

is the firework exploding, not the camera jiggling.

And I can’t photograph the noise, or the smell of the smoke, or the thud! in your chest.

Happy 236th birthday to the United States.
