Fourth of July

Fourth of JulyI attended the fourth of July Fireworks celebration at Sugarhouse Park. I wanted to try long exposure pictures of the fireworks. Most of the pictures didn't work, but I got one or two interesting shots. Note this set of shots was experimental.

Anyway, I created a gallery for the event. Amazingly, I got the photos up within a few hours of viewing the event.

The Crowd Pours Into the StreetI have to admit, my favorite part of a fireworks display is the moment after the finale when the crowd pours into the streets ... stopping all of the traffic and turning the town into a mass of pedestrian traffic. It is one of the few times in the year where we actually get to see the large numbers of people that live in this community. There is a million people in this valley ... most huddled over computers at work or on the freeways commuting.

The rare times when we come out of our shells as a community is interesting indeed.
