July 4th Childhood Memories
My home town was a small village of boat builders. Main street ran along the shoreline of the St. Clair River. Our home was a hundred and fifty years old when we moved in. A large three-story home that was forever being remodeled. We were just blocks from the water’s edge where the July 4th fireworks display took place. My father would either take us into town or out on the boat to watch the sky be lit up. Many “oohs” and “ahs”
Fast forward to now and the firework shows on the San Francisco Bay have wowed me over and over with displays of light in the night sky that seem impossible.
The firework celebration I experienced in Tiburon years ago had built-in sound effects as the sounds cascaded up the hills it sounded like cannons being shot.
On a yacht floating under the fireworks. Really feels like you can touch them sometimes.
On a private lagoon where the fireworks where bigger and closer than imaginable.
The amazing unforgettable 75th Firework Celebration for the anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. Was amazing!
Those private parties in the hills of Sausalito with vista’s of the San Francisco Skyline in the distance and the Bay filled with boats. A haven!
Disneyland and Epcot – stunning fireworks every night. Big WOW!
As a photographer I have enjoyed photographing the fireworks from different vantage points. Each year sitting in a different perch to record the light show. A non-ending delight.
Cheers to your Red, White & Blue!
