A perfect example of this was 4th of July weekend at my brother Alex's house. He had a bunch of people over and set off fireworks in the street as the sun was setting. Other neighbors set off fireworks too; someone down the street had the illegal, professional kind which made for a rather impressive pyrotechnic display. It was a fun way to spend a warm, summer evening. I can't remember the last time all of us three siblings hung out together on a 4th of July.
I forgot I took these photos of my family playing in the street that evening. Alex was handing out sparklers and I tried my hand at photographing them, but I still don't have that down yet. I'll keep at it. Summer's not over yet.
