    I do love the artistic effects the camera can

    give me when I take pictures of fireworks. Sure, I can take your usually bursting bloom colors what not.... but I love the jagged edge results of what happens if I move, breathe or change my shutter speed... Let's say, I love to experiment in everything in life and in taking...

    I've always loved fireworks,

    I just hate the wait before a display. I love it when they play music with them too. I went to one last year and it was amazing when they played the Doctor Who theme tune with them, it went together really well.

    Fireworks (class C)

    When I was a boy of about 8 or 9 in the late 70's, I recall getting to go to my first fireworks stand just before the 4th of July holiday. My parents and I were visiting friends and they had a Sunday newspaper lying around and in it was the TV Guide which had ads for a giant...

    I think I'm actually a bit of a pyromaniac.

    I love staring at a candle flame or into a fireplace or fire pit. I absolutely love the 4th of July (Independence Day for all of the non-Americans) and fireworks are such a traditional part of the holiday festivities. I love how they can light up the sky with the different...

    Always Have

    They are so beautiful.  My family runs a fireworks stand.  It is my favorite time of the year.  It is the only time we feel like a family.

    unfortunately I can't do fireworks this year

    because the guy who's house we go to every year to do fireworks said that the grass was too dry and doing fireworks might start a fire, why have a fourth of July barbecue if there isn't fireworks, why not have it the day after the fourth of July and just have a barbecue, because...

    I love fireworks and often go to them in the

    summer. This past weekend I took my 8 year old son to a musical concert and fireworks show. This was a wonderful celebration of our independence on the 4th of July. We both had a great time as all of the crowd did.

    A Unique Gift.....

    When I was growing up, one of the perks of having a father in the military, was that you always got to see fantastic fireworks on base.  They'd set up bleachers, open a concession stand, and dazzle you with a  spectacular pyrotechnics display.  Every seat was a...

    Bonfire Night Is the Best!

    For me, November 5th or Bonfire night is the best, nearly as good as Christmas! I love the warmth and cosyness of the celebrations. I love wrapping up in my Winter clothes with a glass of red wine, eagerly waiting to light the first rocket. Normally we have a few friends...

    I miss lighting my own fireworks

    because it's banned in residential areas and that's all because of sick people who tortured animals with it.

    Loooove 'em. I can watch fireworks all night.

    I remember visiting a local mall where they have fireworks every Saturdays. The different colors up in the dark sky is so amazing.

    4th of July... The warm summer sun is still quite bright at dusk. The air is sweet; a lemonade breeze that is sticky and clings to your skin. Your head dizzy with the noise of chatter and laughter. There you are in a pair of shorts, sitting on an old wooden bench of a picnic...

    Amazing How Things Can Change.

    My last 4th of July, I experienced the greatest fireworks I've ever seen!  They were very up close and personal!  A memory I'll always treasure.  And now more than ever.  I've been writing a lot about my current experiences alive and not so well going on...

    July 4th

    This is my favorite day of the year.  The closer to the display the better.  I like to feel it in my chest.

    I Have Seen Them Go Wrong Before.

    Fire is by nature a chaotic system, fireworks are a way of harnessing this chaos and making art out of it. I have watched it go right, and it is a thing of beauty when it does: The company that did this display is a rather small group out of Kansas, but their work is fantastic...
