Last night I headed downtown with Mom, Richard, Trey and his friend Ricky to watch fireworks from Rockin' the River. They do fireworks every week after the concert. A fellow photographer friend gave me some pointers on where we could park away from all the traffic letting out of the event later, but it would require us to walk a little ways (3/4 of a mile) along the Trinity River to get set up. So we hiked up the rather steep banks they put in along the river and over so we could get down to the sidewalk.
We arrived around 40 minutes before the fireworks started, so we took the opportunity to do some light painting with our cell phones and also shot some photos of the skyline. We had a really nice view of the whole city from where we stood.
I'm looking forward to more fireworks fun tonight with our church family!
