Fourth of July celebratory fireworks started one night early at Rich's friends barbecue. Hands down one of my favorite aspects of this holiday is the fireworks, sparklers, bottle rockets, you name it. Watching the colors and the burning light shoot up into the night sky is magical. There used to be a big fancy professionally done show done every year at Jones Beach State Park, but since they cut funding everyone just relies on each other to supply the entertainment. I think this is way better. Here are some of the pictures I took until I realized how handy my tripod would have been. Ah well, all in the moment.
