Friday, July 4, 2008 ... Fireworks

Happy 4th of July!

5-30-2008 fireworks wide
Leland's girlfriend Kailey took these at the Rose Festival in June, from the Hawthorne Bridge looking north. She graciously e-mailed them to me, and I saved them for the 4th of July! Thanks, Kailey.
I just might make it to the fireworks on the Willamette tonight, with my tripod. We'll see--if I eat too much of the guys' good grilled meat and veggies, I might opt to go home and watch the fireworks from Vancouver, WA, on the TV. They're expecting thousands and thousands of people downtown to see them, and much the same number in Vancouver at theirs.

Hi Lynette! I adore fireworks, and these are stunning! Great ABC post! And what would I say of the Keller Fountain? Incredible!!
Thanks for your comment on Blogtrotter, now on its last post on Santiago de Compostela! Wish you a great 4th of July and wonderful weekend!

Wow! That is some show! Hope you get to enjoy those fireworks tonight, one way or another. ;)

Why leave the comfort of your own home....just pull these up on your computer and enjoy the fireworks.
Great shots. I thought about the camera and the tripod and then opted to go with some of my grandchildren to the nearby golf course and watch the fireworks from there. My grandson sat in my lap and oooh and aaahed over every one. Happy 4th.

I love fireworks. . . .We went downtown tonight (about 3 miles from the park) so I could shoot some for the blog. They are so much fun, no?
