July 4th...Fireworks Up Close and Personal


Please don't ask about the title. We will reveal nothing except that we're not going to do this again next year.

But the pictures are wonderful, even if taken with my iPhone (which has no capacity to zoom).

Do note the haze of smoke surrounding many of the shots, though, when trying to piece together the narrative surrounding this particular (mis) adventure.









I hope everyone out there had a happy, safe, and quiet Fourth of July!

The fireworks I love are at the Christmas carols.

The smoke!

Were you, perhaps, much, much too close, if you could see the smoke? Or did the smoke irritate the lungs as much as the noise did the nerves? (I know, you said no narrative will be forthcoming. But I just had to ask.)

Much much too close. Put it this way: couldn't get much closer. None of this was on purpose but related to harebrained notions of seeing fireworks from a safe vantage point, getting caught in traffic never having found said vantage point, and ending up in the wrong spot at the right time if you have an 18 month old with noise sensitivities.

There, I've already said too much!
