Archiving My Summer

I ran across a nice firework shot while doing my September archiving. It was taken during the 2008 Aquatennial fireworks, in Minneapolis along the Mississippi river front.

Each year I try to find a new location. This year I fought the crowds on the Stone Arch Bridge, I arrived around three hours early to beat the crowds and as a result had to put up with a drunken nut who fancied himself a “Photography Expert”. He insisted that I had to use a cable release and a wide-angle lens to take “Proper” fireworks photos, and preceded to say so over and over and over again… Even after I politely explained for the sixth time, that I was using a wide-angle lens and wireless remote. Agggh!
