Fireworks at Home

Until I moved here, I always lived in places where home fireworks were essentially illegal. I remember as a kid we had “snakes” which hardly move at all and short “sparklers” which are cool, but fairly safe as well.

I remember hearing about people going to get illegal fireworks from the Reservation, but never knew anything more than that about it.

Here you can have fireworks at home. I think they aren’t supposed to come off of the ground. (Do you hear me, neighbor?)

Last year it was so windy that we never got to light our fireworks. Nearly every year we do them late because of the wind.

This was probably the first year we actually did them on the 4th. I was also excited to learn a couple tips for taking fireworks photos.

So without further ado:

This one was before I remembered to change the setting on my camera off of “Sunset” mode. Sunset=saturated colors. Turned out kinda cool.

I♥this one. Especially how the sparks formed a heart 🙂

Hmm…this one looks familiar somehow….?

This may be why. 😀

Sometimes less is more.

Stop staring at me.



The End.
