Some of the fireworks my cousins set off today for Independence Day. :D

I had some issues getting the camera to focus. I ended up having to manual focus and just hope the pictures came out ok. :(

I love fireworks! Too bad they're illegal where I live. The most we can have is sparklers.

:iconareteeirene:
AreteEirene Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2008   Photographer
Oh they're illegal here, too. :lol: But on the 4th the police generally look the other way, and my uncle lives out in the country, so no worries. And we're at about 150% for normal rain levels, so no chance for fires either. :phew:

We had those three foot long sparklers. Those were awesome. :D

I love the huge sparklers!

The police do the opposite of looking the other way on the 4th for us. Especially if you live near touristy areas. It's sad, really.

They've even figured out how to make dark blue ones, and blue for the longest time was a "never gonna happen" color. :heart:

She's drawing something. :lol: With charcoal pencils. So maybe not covered, but dirty hands at least.
