Happy Independence Day weekend everyone!! I hope you are all out there eating hot dogs (or at least watching the rivalry of Chestnut and Kobayashi), oohing and aahing at the fireworks, playing with sparklers (carefully), watching parades, and enjoying the company of friends and family on a picnic blanket. Yep, that sounds like 4th of July to me.
If you're in the Peoria area, don't miss the annual "Red, White, and Boom" show on the riverfront. Viewing angles from both sides of the river are good, just be sure to set up early. I haven't mad it in a few years now and this shot is from 2008.
Have a great holiday weekend!
