Image, Picture of the Week!



This picture was taken at this past weekend’s War of 1812 Commemoration, capturing a moment in one of the biggest firework celebrations on the Eastern Seaboard.

I like how it turned out, all mired in reflections of reflections.

I’ve been reading and observing Abelardo Morell’s seminal photography book/monograph titled CAMERA OBSCURA. And today’s picture has some of that concept, of the strange tricks that light plays.

July 4th: In Brief

July 4th.

I am still very much a child of Public Enemy and my my thoughts can be summed up as follows:

“If you heard I was celebrating… it’s a world wide lie!”

On top of that, what annoys me is half the people setting off firecrackers (depending where you live, possibly illegally) could not begin to tell you why they are setting off firecrackers.

They set-off a firecracker, giggle like a chimp, then set off another firecracker. With no more thought of why they are doing what they are doing, then a baboon in orbit around the moon.

Somehow it’s a fitting definition of America.

A country filled with people with no real sense of the country.

No sense of truth from lies.
