Fav Foto Friday #50

Fav Foto FridayFav Foto Friday is an opportunity to share each Friday, on your own blog, one photo…or maybe even a gallery of some of your favorite photos that you have taken during the week, that make you smile or that was a great photo capturing opportunity…anything really!  And as photographers are often known to say, “The best camera is, the one that you have with you!”

Whether you are a pro-photographer or just venturing into photography…or maybe you are like me and just whip out your cell phone when you are going about your day…take those photos and share them! Feel free to add any camera info and shooting info that you may have on your photos as well.

This week’s edition of Fav Foto Friday are from our town’s 4th of July fireworks. The fireworks were down at a local park with a little beach front of Long Island Sound. As someone who grew up in Massachusetts with the ‘real ocean’ I do not normally consider Long Island Sound as the ‘real beach’ but sometimes it is better than nothing! And I always appreciate when we go for fireworks on the 4th of July.

This year it was such a beautiful evening. Was a warm day but had a nice breeze all day and cooled off in the evening…actually ended up wrapped up in a towel by the end of the evening and was glad I took the time to put on long pants. It was nice to be in the midst of a fun crowd with lots of little ones around dancing to the music as we waited for it to get dark.

We were treated to a beautiful sunset before the fireworks, which these photos don’t really do justice to the beautiful colors in the sky that night…but I like them anyway. I enjoyed the firework display as well as being surrounded by others who, if only for the moment, seem to be proud of being an American and proud of our great country.

As we were looking around we noticed that there were guards patrolling the area, as well as on top of the roof of the concession stand building nearby…which was a bit sad to admit that in today’s world they might be a needed presence during gathering such as these. Thankfully, it was a peaceful and enjoyable evening.
