fireworks !

On July 3rd, everyone in Hyde Park ducked through the 55th Street tunnel and spilled out onto the Point to watch the distant, professional Navy Pier fireworks ...

... along with many rounds set off by armies of local enthusiasts. This one was shot from the Point over the water, although the water was also full of swimmers. The artillery shelling continued late into the night, and for most nights since.

The distant display, like a giant candle has been lit beside the city lights, glinting off Lake Michigan and the red haze of smoke.
