4th of July 2018

For everyone who did not get to enjoy a 4th of July fireworks display, here for your viewing pleasure is a selection from the fireworks display at Fairfax High School in Fairfax, Virginia.  The images are set to the finale of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.

The photos were taken with a Canon SL1 and Olympus TG-5 on July 4, 2018.

 

Happy 4th of July

This is part of the City of Fairfax fireworks display at Fairfax High School in Fairfax, Virginia. An unwelcome rain shower began with the flag ceremony, sending many people home. The rest of us sheltered as best we could for another hour, and the  rain ceased long enough for a spectacular fireworks display.

Celebrating History

This is our entry in Dutch goes the Photo!’s Tuesday Photo Challenge – History.

In late May of this year, these fireworks marked the beginning of Memorial Day Weekend. As we were growing up, the 4th of July fireworks celebrating our country’s Declaration of Independence was a reminder each year of our nation’s great history.  We look forward to celebrating our history again today.
