Fireworks

If you ever want to relive the days of dial-up modems, I suggest driving to the northern edge of the U.P., then piggybacking your laptop onto your phone’s data signal.

But with today being the 4th of July, I figured I should share a few of the fireworks from last night’s display. I’m particularly fond of the way #1 and #4 turned out, like giant flaming dandelions.

Hope you’re having a great weekend!

Those are all very cool. The others, 2, 3, and 5, look like neon palm trees.

Thanks! I thought #5 had kind of a Phoenix or tropical flower vibe going.

Yeah! I can definitely see the 'Phoenix in flight' vibe (or taking off in a flurry of fiery feathers?). The tips of the 'wings' in blue and white make it even better.

Re the data transfer rates: been there, done that. Spouse and I took my mom on a driving tour around Lake Michigan in June, and we spend a couple of days in Munising and a couple of days in Mackinaw City.

Great photos! I love fireworks, but going to the city display here requires dealing with more traffic and frustration than I can usually cope with. So I'm going to watch a small local display with friends instead. The less spectacular explosions are a reasonable tradeoff for less stress. Looking at pictures will satisfy my urge for the bigger shells.
