These pics were taken while waiting for the fireworks on the water side on the 4th of July. Always a very special atmosphere when people pack themselves on the waterfront to have the best seats on the lawn, marking their territory with their blankets, chairs and stuff (we are not that different from dogs, are we?:) ). Lights of the boats start to flicker over the water. All is in anticipation of what is to come.
The last lights shimmering on the waves, bringing a nostalgic air. Parents holding their children close. A light night breeze begins to blow.
The ones who were posturing with impressive who-knows-what when it was still daylight, fade into the darkness. Faces disappear but voices remain. Unendless flashes of cell phones.
An overall calm sets in.
By the time darkness begins begins its reign, everyone has mellowed out and all are waiting with anticipation for the fire works to begin.
