I didn't plan it this way, but this shot makes an interesting counterpoint to this one:
Thematic Photographic 49: "Human" v.1.0

Oooh, fireworks!

I was so psyched up to shoot our Independence Day fireworks last month, but now that the old site is under construction they moved them about 50 feet over - just enough that the side of my building blocks them! What a disappointment, they used to burst right in front of my rooftop patio.

Very pretty. I wonder where those green lights on the building come from? Are they reflections from somewhere?

For some strange reason I thought it was a man on a motor bike doing a wheely with a blazing front light, to the right of the picture.
Great capture of fireworks.

Beautiful fireworks to bring in a new year. The city looks beautiful with those green lights, too.

Mojo,
I don't do sky watch but I could not compete with this anyway!I can smell the sulfur and taste the smoke. The light at the peak of the firework is so bright It seems like I am there, this is very very cool!
