Why is America Different?

Remember what Independence day means; despite what our post-American President says. America is unique among all the nations of the world.

Below are a selection of photos from the West KY State Fair’s fireworks display. I have many more posted on Picasa. Using a small table top tripod I was able to keep the camera steady. The Olympus camera I have offers a ‘fireworks’ mode for long exposures. The first three photos below were taken in total darkness yet details of objects on the ground come through very clearly. My favorite among all of last night’s pictures is number 84. The photo has a fire-from-the-sky slash post-apocalyptic style.
