Happy 4th of July! I deviate a bit from my travel photos to celebrate Independence Day. A little history below.
Congress voted for the United States to become independent from Great Britain on July 2, 1776. But the U.S Celebrate the day on July 4th. It took 2 days for Congress to vote to accept an official 'Declaration 'of Independence. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration and was edited by Congress.
Picture taken in Borden Park in Rochester Hills, MI. Out of 50 pictures I chose this because of the scribble by the fire. I felt it looked like an art. So the name.

A delightful posting for the occasion. Superb colours and details in this difficult capture!

It's a nice mix of fireworks... More orderly at the top and the more chaotic in the middle. And even the tree at bottom in its silhouette against the fireworks gives the look of fireworks in negative. I can maybe even see a face in here, a cross-eyed bearded thing of sorts. And because I love fireworks so much this really caught me right away when sorting through the Michiganders' posts.

Your fireworks is very sharp and detailed. Beautiful.
Happy Fourth of July!

I like the effect created by the 6 second exposure. The trails from the foreground fireworks are incredibly sharp and the blurred light behind work together well.

I enjoy your title and the idea... And you composed it the right way. Well done.

This is a stunning firework picture. Funny but I never thought about a long exposure firework shot before. Now I see yours it seems obvious. Good work.
