July 4th 2008

You can click on the picture above and get a better view. It's not National-Geographic-worthy but it'll give you a hint. Last night's fireworks show itself was a treat. As was the dinner, the Guinness, and the hospitality in general. It's the photography that's wanting. The thing about shooting fireworks is that I can only tell if a display is worth shooting after it's too late.

And I got in a few tunes. "Yankee Doodle" and "The Marine's Hymn" were appropriate to the occasion but after that the mind wandered and tunes came at random. "Lord Huntley's Cave", "Drummond Castle Laundry", and "Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee" are great tunes but that last is perhaps contraindicated at the great republican fest of July 4th.
