July 4th Fireworks
I sometimes forget what an incredible place NYC (or any big city really) is and how fantastic it is to live here. Saturday's fireworks two blocks from my studio and also just two blocks from my apartment made me appreciate NYC anew. Even more spectacular than the colorful explosions were the thousands of people going "oooohhh" and "aaaahhhh" in unison. The top shot is off across the Hudson River from the studio. I could see 5 barges shooting off the fireworks. Then I quickly ran the three blocks to 34th street and my apartment just in time to catch the end and be swallowed up by the thousands and thousands of people heading east toward the subways.
