The Fourth Of July

2012-07-04 Ridgewood Fireworks 4

It's Independence Day in the United States. We have a huge festival in The Lou at this time of year. It's always been held on the spacious grounds under the Arch but that's in the process of a big restoration. So the authorities moved it to Forest Park. I'm not going near it. Getting in and out, parking and moving around the great park sounds awful.

So I'll shoot the parade this morning in Webster Groves, the town where I live, and the local fireworks tonight. Plenty good enough. Images to come. This photo was taken two years ago in Ridgewood, New Jersey, where I lived briefly long ago and still have family.

You do a good job with fireworks. I got photo tips from you last year about shooting fireworks, and the newspaper photographer had an article about it, so this year I am ready! Except that it is raining and the fireworks were postponed!
