In sports you hear it is all about the about the X’s and O’s but on the 4th of July, it really is all about .. the Oohs and Ahh’s!!!!!!!!!!!! Once a year we gather to celebrate our Nation’s birthday and fix our eyes towards the sky!!!! No matter how many times or where we witness the spectacle of colors …. it still brings joy to our hearts and souls. Happy Birthday …. America!!!!!!!!!!!!

With each and every fireworks display I have had the pleasure to photograph  … I still continue to sit in anticipation of the finale ….. the crescendo of lights and colors. This year was no exception!!!! The Bridge Street celebration in Huntsville was breathtaking!!!!

Shot from the Westin Hotel …. Bridge Streets spectacular 4th of July celebration. Many thanks for the hospitality, as well as, the birds eye view from the Westin Hotel staff  ( and to Rick Davis for assisting with the logistics!!!!  On  a more somber note …… my heart felt thoughts to the residents and families of Ocracoke, NC where the truck hauling the fireworks exploded on the island early Saturday morning canceling their celebration.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
