I love taking photos of fireworks (I’m tempted to print these big). As long as the Macys Fireworks show stays on the Hudson River, we’ll continue to watch the fireworks that my mom’s town puts on in Long Island. Less crowds and we get to be right under them up close (but not too close. We learned our lesson last year when it was a little scary as embers rained down on us for most of the show).

 

Speaking of the Macys show, if it continues to stay on the Hudson River as it has been for the past 5 years, maybe Brooklyn needs to initiate a Kickstarter to have our own fireworks show over the East River again. We can all pitch in a few bucks.
 
Hope you all had a great holiday weekend. We had a mini vacation and came back to Brooklyn late afternoon to a brownout and firetruck commotion on our street. Heatwave in the city! We’re in the dog days of summer now…

    Oh, wow! Fantastic shots. There really is something additionally magical watching fireworks from a bridge. One of these would look great blown up poster sized on a dark wall.
