Chicago Fireworks: July 3

Ahh fireworks… How do I love thee? Let me count the sparkles…

I do love fireworks. Who doesn’t? (Weirdos, maybe?) Well, in Chicago, the big fireworks display is on the 3rd, rather than the 4th. I it’s think due to some crowd control issues… but that is just mostly the “word” on the street. (I have no factual data concerning why the big fireworks is on the 3rd. I guess that would have been good reporting to look that up, eh? But hey, if YOU can confirm in the comments below, please hook it up.)

And so, as Samson and I went for our morning walk, we bumped into some delightful people dedicated to the pursuit of food, freedom and, of course, fireworks. All along the lakefront, families and friends were staking out their “turf” so that they could have the best view of the show.

(Side note: I am learning so much about filming and editing and I think I understand now the importance of knowing what I want the story to be about and finding a way to express that through film. It is not my best filming/editing but I think my wonderful new friends (interviewees) make the video work. Oh and of course… those beautiful fireworks! It’s all about moving forward, right?)
