On the night of the 4th of July I was at home browsing the computer like most other nights. When I heard the pops begin outside I made sure my memory card was in my camera and rushed to the nearest parking lot where the fireworks were visible. If I'd had more pre-planning I would've set up earlier with a tripod to capture the lights in the sky, but going outside with just my camera and a 50mm prime lens turned out lead to some neat pictures. I added my all time favorite from the set to the main candid street photos gallery, but here are five of the pictures I took on the 4th of July.
