Fireworks Over Chartiers Creek

Of all the fireworks photos I’ve taken, this is my favorite, and I took it with my first 2MP digital camera and a tall narrow tripod. This camera had no zoom so there was no real focus time, and it caught the action of the fireworks without hesitation.

This is over Chartiers Creek in Carnegie, not on July 4 but at the end of our community festival in 2003. Chartiers Creek flows right through the middle of town and bridges span it in several places, including these two bridges about 100 yards apart. The fireworks are being set off on the Main Street Bridge, I am on the Mansfield Street Bridge. The building to the right is the Husler building with houses the  Historical Society of Carnegie.

I’m on a roll with the fireworks photos. This is over Chartiers Creek in Carnegie, not on July 4 but at the end of our community festival in 2002 or 2003. Chartiers Creek flows right through the middle of town and bridges span it in several places, including these two bridges about 100 yards apart. The fireworks are being set off on the Main Street Bridge, I am on the Mansfield Street Bridge. Of all the fireworks photos I’ve taken, this is my favorite.


Night Swimming

Night Swimming

My brother and I, gypsies on every holiday, went back to the community park where we’d grown up to watch the Independence Day fireworks, remembering the long days of swimming in the pool and the hot July 4th nights of watching fireworks from the water, never wanting to get out. It was truly magical when they turned the lights on, a completely different place from the daytime. The lights even look hazy and starry, just the way they did with a day’s worth of chlorine in your eyes.

I was never very good at organized sports but I could swim, like a fish, from the time my sister first put me in a pool when I was a toddler. I lived to swim every summer growing up.

The fireworks weren’t bad, but not as good as the memories of night swimming.
