Yes, it’s the moon AND fireworks at the same time. Columbus Ohio with the family last week for the gigantic fireworks display. We had a nice evening together.
it’s the annual effort to improve my fireworks photography.
And I am celebrating another year with my Fourth of July birthday today.
Happy Birthday to me.
Steve and went down to the North Side Friday night. The Pirates game had started at 7:00 but we went to dinner at Atria’s watching the game against St. Louis Cardinals on the TV and then we walked around, did some serious people watching and checked the score on my phone. St, Louis won the game 4-3.
A couple of dedicated Pirates fans who let me take a photo of them sporting their Pirates Parrot Hats.
The Barges on the Allegheny River from where the fireworks were launched.
Still working on getting the best night shot of Bill Mazeroski statue.

A dot of moon on the right.
Night time view at Aunt Linda and Uncle Frank’s. You can see two of Uncle Frank’s vintage cars he’s restored.
When we pulled up to the stop sign, we saw Kennywood Fireworks at seemingly eye level because their street is up so high.
It’s been a fun week of colorful collages.
Once I got started it was hard to stop.
A lot of response was generated by the different colors and it’s made me see the trend in my photography, color wise, what I’m drawn to….besides the human element. The clothes we choose, our dishes, the bed linens and artwork which surround us in our lives. Many have commented on which color is their favorite.
Right now everywhere I look it is green green green We’ve had a lot of rain.
Good to be alive at sixty-five.
Happy Medicare card to me. I can get that free bus pass now.
My sister and I are in Columbus OH on the big birthday eve after our family gatherings and driving over 1700 miles.
Laura and James hosting a July 4th birthday celebration for me tomorrow.

Fireworks fit the theme Transient perfectly.

Jen H at WordPress has created the weekly Photo Challenge: Local.
What feels familiar, home. The places you know by heart. Local diner, local playground, local neighborhood, local church,local streets-I live in the city by a park.
I notice I shoot a lot of local coffee, too.

Our friends drove us down to the beach on the Spit.
No ones spirit was dampened by the rain.
Earlier people had clipped notes and intentions to the woven basket. There were some fireworks that illuminated the sky, sh0t out from the basket.
“2004 Mavis began the Burning Basket Project as an experience of interactive, impermanent art. Gathered from her background in creating baskets and woven with the desire to engage the public in a unique, living art form, Mavis has facilitated burning baskets in many communities. The large, intricate basket is given as a gft to the people, infused with decoration and spirit by willing participants, and finally burned, dramatically and upwardly releasing positive messages and heartfelt sentiments.”- From the artist’s website
Two different short videos (with the same name) A jumpy little phone video I shot during the Burning Basket ceremony and after the basket their were individuals who lit hula hoops and twirled fire around
