Fourth of July in Metropolis, IL - Home of Superman


I was down to the last minute last year deciding if I wanted to journey down to the riverfront to shoot the fireworks.  Just as I began to hear the first few pops, I jumped in the car and made my way to Dorothy Miller Park Area... 


Knowing that I was on the wire and would never find a parking space, I parked a few blocks away and started walking...  After a couple of minutes I was sinking into the grass with my camera and a big cup of ice.


I do believe this was the first occurrence of my watching fire works completely by myself.  As I sat there shooting and listening to the different groups around me, I was glad that I was alone.  It seemed like it should be sad... but the family behind me had a syrup bucket full of kids that were more interested in shrieking and running about than watching the fireworks... and the groups on the other sides of me had all either gotten "loaded" before they came or were sitting there getting loaded because they wreaked of beer and would let out redneck like screams and yelps as the colors splashed against the sky... I'm not talking about celebratory cheers of Patriotism.... I'm talking about sounds that I would imagine people like those Duck Dynasty Folks or the people on that security show or the family of Honey Boo Boo would make... 

I look forward to shooting tonight after Evan and I complete a day of cookouts and homemade ice cream... 

This shot reminds me of Sideshow Bob giving a peace sign ... in an abstract sort of way...

LAST Tuesday Night's Sunset...



You may ask why I'm showing you a sunset from a week ago ... because it was lovely and I never got around to sharing it with you... and that's sometimes the way the cookie crumbles...

There's just almost nothing as relaxing to me as watching the sun go down on the water...

A "Loungy" Day and A Picture of the River...


I said to you yesterday that we might jaunt off to the First Ever Lusk Creek Cook Off and the Downtown Music and Arts Festival in Paducah... but I'm afraid we didn't feel quite that ambitious.

After lunch on the screened in patio, a couple of segments of that newish show, World's Worst Tattoo's and a bit of catching up around the house we did talk ourselves into running to Paducah on a couple of errands and I was delighted to see the sky begin to come into focus as we made our way onto the bridge...

Enjoy!
