We didn't get down to our hometown fireworks this year due to a graduation party, but we went to the Manchester, CT display on the 5th. Here's a few.

Here is a link to a gallery of photos taken by David Gilkey for NPR. He was embedded with the Marines in southern Afganistan and what started out as a 24 hour mission ended up as a 7 day journey. I found his work to be top notch... ...
tried shooting fireworks for the first time last night, i wish i had scouted out a better location but it was the first time seeing the fireworks in this town. i think i have a great spot picked out for next year though!

While I was taking photos for the bridge contest at Lock 8 along the Mohawk/Hudson bike and hike trail, I saw quite a few other shots to get and I thought I'd post them. Any critique is appreciated. :D
I couldn't believe these people were fishing, because it was rainy, cold and very...
