It's Independance Day, and here's the fireworks show in Bricktown, Oklahoma City. That's the old Rock Island Implement Building. Talk about a "blast" from the past. And while I'm at it:

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. And thank you, Americans, for making us what we are: the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    Great capture! It's rare that you see photos of fireworks in B&W but I think that's part of what makes this photo so great. I also love the contrast of the fireworks, smoke, sky, and building! Way to go!
