Fireworks!

Larry Crump's Fireworks Pages. While searching for fireworks related sites, I came across this great site. I doubt you'll find a better resource for fireworks information. Mainly, I like looking at the pretty pictures. As Larry puts it, "Fireworks are an art form that use the night sky as the canvas." Sadly, Larry died exactly one year ago today. So, go check out his wonderful web site and maybe you can get some ideas for this weekend's July 4th celebration.

just like the difference in experiece between watching baseball on tv, and going to the park to see the game, photography just can't do justice to fireworks. still, those pictures have me stoked for the 4th.

The little kid in me really relates to the lifelong little kid in Larry. I've got to get up to Boom City! Though sometimes on the wrong side of the law, it's always a spectacle!
