Fourth of July

At my place of employment, the Fourth of July is a busy day. In the five years I have worked there, I've never had that day off. This year was the first time. I worked half a day on Friday, July 3rd then went down to see the fireworks that would follow the Red's game as part of their "Fireworks Friday" promotion.

Unfortunately, the weekend would begin to take a turn for the worst as David Weathers gave up a grand slam, blowing the 3 - 0 Cincinnati lead and allowing the Cardinals to mount a comeback and win. I watched from the other side of the river while the sold out crowd at Great American Ballpark screamed in anger.

At least the fireworks were pretty spectacular...

Typically I feel it's pretty lame and Un-American to host fireworks on July 3rd like in Mason and Fairfield, however the Reds had an excuse as they have a fireworks show for nearly every Friday night home game.

It rained on the Fourth, but I got to go to the Reds game with some good friends. The weekend would end in bad ice cream, sad people, returning to work, a lack of fireworks being sold in Ohio and getting rear ended.


  1. Love that shot with all the boats out on the river. That's one thing I always love seeing more of and that's additional recreational traffic on the river.

  2. I'm sorry for your teams loss but it garnered some great fireworks pics for us. Hope all is well. Have a great day.

  3. You've gotta put up some hi-res photos of these, some great photos here.

  4. These photos are absolutely breathtaking.
