The show must go on

With all the rain we’ve been having lately here in Saint Petersburg, things were looking pretty bleak for the fireworks display downtown, and by 8:00pm on the 4th, we still didn’t think we were going to have a show. But, wouldn’t you know, the tail end of the storms blew by, the skies cleared (somewhat) and we did have a show after all (we were much more fortunate than our inland neighbors in Tampa and points east, who were rained out completely).

July 4, 2010 - Saint Petersburg

Carol & I bundled up Ava, our granddaughter, and headed downtown towards the bay. We didn’t have time to find an optimum spot, so we settled for what we could get. Therefore, many of my photos have palm trees featured in prominent silhouette. Let’s just say, these are “Florida Style” fireworks photos, and pretend that it was planned!

I’m embedding a slideshow from Flickr, which is a first for me, so be gentle if I didn’t get it right on the first try 🙂

  1. Absolutely love the photos, Michael. The palm trees silhouettes add to the atmosphere! Where better to watch a beautiful fireworks show than in Florida. We attended the St. Pete show every year while my kids were younger. So much fun!
