Macy's 4th of July Spectacular.

NYC July 4, 2009

These were all taken from Brooklyn, under the Manhattan Bridge in the rain. I took the strap off my Canon because it was getting tangled up with the shutter release cable. Shortly after on the subway platform, I grabbed the camera out of my bag. In my haste to see the following shots, I tossed it into the air and onto the concrete floor. It broke, but not before giving me these. Anyway, always leave your strap on.


Added some I took the following year from Hoboken, NJ. Macy's decided that year to start shooting them off from The Hudson River allong the West Side of Manhattan. With a new camera.

    I tripped and smaked my camera on a rock. Tim for a new Canon. Cool shots.
