The Third Of July

Webster Groves Carnival 1

Independence Day, the Fourth of July, is a big deal in this country.  My suburb, Webster Groves, has one of the bigger festivals in the area, although nothing compared to the main event downtown. I like to go over on opening night and shoot the carnival rides around sunset.

I'll be in the city center tonight to shoot the BIG fireworks.

A couple of people asked for a Thursday Arch photo.  The holiday air show was practicing over the Mississippi yesterday afternoon. I got the bottom pic from my office window.

I like all the shots but the arch is impeccable again. How you always find a new approach is beyond me but wonderful. Keep your camera clicking.

Good luck shooting the fireworks. I'm going to try that here in Memphis. I did this a few years ago and it was a disaster. Maybe I can do better this time.

Beautiful shots!

I took some for our Canada Day... but I'm still working with film cameras, not digital, so I have no idea yet if they turned out.
