Fireworks in the City as seen from our balcony…and the aftermath

Quite the show last night.  Starting just before dusk, there was a huge fireworks show between 18th and 19th on Bryant.  At first it was an annoyance as we tried to finish watching a movie, but eventually I warmed up to the festivities and got out the XE-1, 14mm and tripod and made a couple of 40 second exposures.

You get the idea, minus the teeth-chattering explosions.

This morning I took a walk around the block with the X100T on the way to Starbucks to take a look at the aftermath.  All in all it could have been a lot worse.  Happy birthday, US of A.
