Early July 4th Celebration at The Lakes in Ohio

When we arrived, Erika suggested taking a photo of the place empty and then later after it filled up. Sounded like a good idea to me.

So here is what The Lakes Fourth of July celebration looked like Sunday night- June 29th.

Lots of teenagers in clumps, enjoying the festivities





July FireworksThe fireworks are over.  A large light came on.  Everyone was packing and cleaning up.  Getting to the car and out of the parking lot.  Home in about 15 minutes after this shot!

    I really liked the shot of the inflatables and their reflection on the water, and of the family as night began to take hold. Great images, per your usual. 🙂

    • Thanks for your thoughtful and generous comments Stef. It was a fun night, especially for the children and they love jumping in the inflatables.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
