Fireworks on the Fourth
Every Fourth of July for I don't remember how many years, we are invited over to our friends the Gordons for a dinner party and a chance to watch the fireworks in Glen Cover from their deck, overlooking the harbor. It is a spectacular view and particularly nice among a small group of friends with great food and wonderful conversations. This year the fireworks started a bit early, and that made some of the photographs more interesting, with a blue sky and some clouds, instead of just a black sky. What is also interesting is that we could see in the distance, two other fireworks shows on the other side of Long Island Sound. At the left, I think is the New Rochelle show, and under the pink burst I am guessing is the Playland Park show.
As I was going out to my car when it was getting dark, I saw this American flag hanging on the front porch of the Gordon's home. Something about the deep blue sky in the background and the way the flag is illuminated by a spotlight behind it made me stop and photograph this scene.
