The opening salvo from Thunder over Louisville 2012. This was pretty much the best shot of the bunch. In the part I cropped out you could see that I had the flash on. I turned off the flash so I wasn’t annoying everyone else, but then all the other photos turned out at least slightly blurry. Ah well.
There are two barges for launching fireworks, one on either side of the Second Street Bridge, plus the bridge itself is wired to “blow up” at various points of the show. Soon after this photo I turned the camera off and just watched. It was an amazing show, with a huge climax followed by an encore that was even bigger. I wish I had photos, but I think I’m happier that I wasn’t watching the finales through the camera’s viewfinder.
I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
