Each 4th of July, it seems we always end up watching a fireworks display somewhere. In 2007 and 2008 we ended up in downtown Memphis. This year, Adam, Kiwi and myself decided to try the Olive Branch City Park. It is much closer than downtown Memphis, much nicer, less crowded and has virtually no crime. It was rumored that the city spent 30 grand on the show, so it was expected to be entertaining.
We got to the park plenty early and found a nice spot to view the display. Seeing as I love photography, I was pretty excited to get some good photos, but that didn’t really happen. The park staff decided to leave the street lights on, so fail there. Also, it was pretty windy so 99% of the over 200 pictures I snapped turned out blurry and unusable. I managed to get a small handful that turned out semi-decent which I have posted below. You can click each photo for a larger version.
You would think that my fireworks pics would progressively get better over the years with experience but that hasn’t been the case. My 2007 set is by far the best and my favorite.
Either way, I had fun at the park and look forward to trying again next year.
