This post has stuff about a previous relationship. My perspective has changed
I think that the Town of Gilbert was trying to honor the fact that Independence Day is on the 4th by only shooting off four fireworks. After the embers from one of them fell upon the crowd they decided to move the show which resulted in a mass exodus. Maybe next year. Anyway I managed to capture all four fireworks.
So they’re not as amazing as Mary’s beautiful photographs but hey, I can try.
Update: These photos were taken with an old Pentax ME Super 35mm FILM not digital, ISO 400, fstop @ 8.5, focused on infinity, no flash. Put it on manual and hold the shutter open for 3 or 4 seconds. I think I could have done better with a) better fireworks, b) ISO 100 — less grainy, c) a remote shutter release. I think I shook the camera a little bit on a couple of the photos.
