4th of July fireworks photos Img Hvy

I'm tired today after staying awake till 1:00 am last night, aren't I just like an old person? I can stay awake for long periods of time (like 36 hours when traveling) but I look so haggard and I feel really "meh" when I do. We stayed awake until 11:30 doing fireworks in our driveway yesterday and I couldn't sleep easily after that haha!

I decided it was a good chance to dress up a little bit, I mean in red, white and blue. That's not a combination that I usually can walk around it haha.

Forth of July coordinate

Headscarf: Sanrio
Jacket: no brand
Tanktop: H&M (so appropriate XD)
Skirt: Old Navy
Shoes: Target

We don't go to the big fireworks display that the city of Minneapolis puts on every year over the Mississippi river, or not even one of those little town displays. Actually I've forgotten the reason why we don't, but I used to see them when I was little. So to celebrate the 4th we had a small meal and just chatted. My father did the bbq'ing, but there was not much to grill for just 3 people (I didn't eat any meat that day).

I also watched The Sword in the Stone with my dad while we waited for the sun to go down. I like that movie even though it really has no plot, Archimedes the owl is super cute with his crabby attitude. But my dad didn't stay until the night time, which was sad because he missed the nice fireworks we set off.

Photographing fireworks is a bit tricky for me actually, but I really enjoy it. Sometimes you can capture really interesting moments of action if it's timed just right. There's not much I can say, but I hope you enjoy looking at these fireworks photos as I did taking them^^
