Cause, baby, you’re a firework


This past weekend was our local Cranberry Township Community Days.

One of the highlights of this event is the fireworks display that occurs on the last evening of the three-day celebration.

Cranberry Township Community Day used to occur on July 4th (Independence Day) every year, so the fireworks display has become a tradition and symbol of this celebration.

Hubby works for Cranberry Township. Β  So for the past 15 or so years, we have had front row “reserved” seats for the show.

In fact, we are so close that we have been hit with ash and get to “enjoy” the sulfur smell of the explosives as they light up the sky.

It’s all part of the fun and adventure!

Photographing fireworks is quite difficult.Β  I should have researched and studied a bit, and I should’ve taken a tripod!

But here is one that represents a snippet of the fun and beauty of the night.

It was a great show, and a great celebration of a wonderful community.

I hope you had an enjoyable weekend – finding time to relax and celebrate – all the traditions, symbols, and activities that make life so sweet – at life in between.

Cheers & Hugs,

  1. A front row seat! I’m a bit envious. It’s so crowded here that’s it’s getting harder and harder to find a good place to shoot fireworks.

    This burst is pretty, and looks like someone threw confetti all around them. πŸ™‚

    A tripod is a must, after that it’s just a matter of getting your timing down and how long to expose for.

    • that is what I read on my iPhone – AFTER I was sitting there ready to go – without my tripod – LOL! Thanks for the tips Deborah – I’ll be sure to bring it next year!


    • Thanks Ann! It just doesn’t seem to capture the beauty my mind remembers my eyes seeing, but I appreciate your kind comment. There’s always next year to look forward to trying again πŸ™‚
