The past few years I have not went to see fireworks because I am not a huge fan of the noise and my youngest son really doesn't like them, but this year I went to our local town Wright City's Firework display. It reminded me of how much I love the fact that to celebrate our Freedom and the people who fought for it, we blow things up! Seems like such irony in that and I love it. I love the colors, the applause, the sparkle, and the looks on little kids faces as they explode. For some reason it really makes my heart burst with pride to be apart of this country. So in true photographer fashion...i snapped a few pictures of the fireworks before the smoke took over. Of course I had to do smoke bomb and sparkler pictures because as a photographer I would feel incomplete had I not.
Happy Fourth of July!!!
