Blue Water - 花火
Fireworks in my town, Numazu, very close to my house, to celebrate the end of the World Skills Festival in Japan. For this and other shots I was very close to the launch site. The fizzling sparks were falling like snow onto the grassy bank around me. After a big volley I would get smothered in smoke. But as always, getting even one picture that you are happy with is an indescribable pleasure.
Numazu really is a great place to live!
I just recently did a painting of this bridge - here. It is kind of crappy, because I only recently took up painting again after a long absence, but have a look if you are interested.
