for a little kid who isn't afraid of much, Gio abhors fireworks. i think it is the base-heavy boom from when they explode more than the light burst. after 5 to 10 minutes of trying to calm him, he finally gave up and even napped a little during the show.
i wanted to get a shot with us in the foreground and the fireworks as the main focus. this turned out pretty nicely, i think.
