Every year, for as long as I can remember having children, there was a magnificent fireworks display in the nearby city of Houma. However, for reasons unknown to the local newspaper and me, there will be no display this year.
Private fireworks are illegal in this parish, so I don’t like to buy them for the boys to do on our property.
I will miss seeing the fireworks this year–so much so that the 4th for me just won’t be the same without it.
For some reason, I was compelled to take photos last year. Night photography is difficult when you don’t have a tripod. Even more difficult when you don’t know what you’re doing, as in my case!
I pulled up these photos and decided to display them here in memory of fantastic fireworks fantasias of days gone by.
Without the chest-rattling, resounding BOOM, it’s just not the same!
So, come on and cheer me up! Tell me what you plan to do for the 4th, and maybe I’ll be inspired to do more than make lists about what I need to be doing!
