By now I am sure you all are super duper jealous of our roof top deck. I don't blame you. But don't worry, I'm probably super duper jealous of your beach, pool, huge yard, or what have you that I can't get here in the city. However, if there is one thing that a roof top is good for, it is fireworks. We get two good displays a year-- New Year's and Fourth of July. And this year we got three if you include the fireworks from the Sailabration. We are lucky to be able to see the whole show peeking above the treeline in Patterson Park. So this year was no different. We camped up on our deck (and by camped up, I mean took a few beers and chilled out on our patio furniture) about an hour before the show.
It is a must that you go up to the deck just as it's getting dark and wait about an hour before the show. Why might you ask? Well if you don't, you will miss out on the amazing 360 degree fireworks show. I'm not kidding. Not only do we have an amazing view of the show in downtown Baltimore, but we get to see everyone else's fireworks going off throughout the city. I brought my camera up to the deck and took a few shots just to show you how fabulous it is.
And that is my tutorial for how to shoot off fireworks if you live in a city. Now let's just be thankful that Andrew didn't burn the house down.
How was your Fourth?
