Wanda took these photos during our outing to Pawtucket's (RI) 4th of July firework extravaganza. It truly was a lesson in how "the people" in this area spend the night of 4th of July. There must have been 10,000 people in and around the baseball stadium, and even though we got there just as the pyrotechnic extravaganza was about to begin (we were stuck in traffic for sometime), we still found a nice spot from which to watch the sky with delight. As usual the fireworks light up the sky, exploded, glittered, made shapes in funky colors, and dissipated. As usual, we all had a smile on our face watching the magic of "fire engineering." There is something so beautiful and elemental in fire that we just can't seem to get enough of fire-related displays (think WaterFire).
