Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

Four images.  Fourth of July.  Starting with………….

Fourth of July Parade with Ballerinas just before noon in a sweltering heat, a blazing sun, scorching pavement…..okay, enough descriptors.It was hot hot hot. Or should I say HOT HOT HOT. (sorry, Arrow) Today we were all practically listless.  Laura and James power is back on after five days but Marlene and Donald have been without power for a whole week and hope tomorrow is the day.  So the holiday took a different turn than planned as I wrote before.  The evening was a challenge as I tried to shoot the sparklers with a slow shutter speed.-

and for the sparkler portion of the evening.   I sure wish I realized I had brought my tripod in the back of the car.

Found it there today when loading up some groceries.

Laura was on the move with her sparkler
Erika gets her sparkler moving too.

Daddy Mark puts on a sparkler show for the kids as they watch the fireworks over the pine trees.  It was a fun time and a great birthday party.
