Kaboom

"Everything is created from moment to moment, always new. Like fireworks, this is a celebration and you are the spectator contemplating the eternal Fourth of July of your absolute splendor."

-Francine Lucille

It was a very full weekend. A chili cook-off, a rodeo parade, the Kaboom rock concert and fireworks on the Embarcadero, plus on Sunday, a trip to Fort Point to visit the inside of the historic fort, and to photograph the awesome lighthouse that sits just inside the fort's courtyard. It was so much fun to get out with the camera for these events, even if it meant that tonight I am a swollen, pudgy mess. LOL. It was oh so worth it. :) The rock concert Saturday night was awesome, and at right around 9:00 PM...there were fireworks. I captured this scene, looking down on the city of San Francisco, from high atop Twin Peaks. Amazing! It was a great opportunity to stretch my night photography muscles. This year the Kaboom concert celebrated it's 13th year, I hope there will be at least 13 more. You can bet I will be there camera in hand. The only thing is, I can't seem to get the first song the station played on the radio, as the fireworks began, out of my head...

Light My Fire
By The Doors

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I were to say to you
Boy we couldn't get much higher...

Come on baby light my fire
Come on baby light my fire
Try to set the night on...fire!

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby light my fire
Come on baby light my fire
Try to set the night on...fire!

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I were to say to you
Boy we couldn't get much higher

Come on baby light my fire!

I love the way the firework burst on the left has a tail like a comet! Or is it a tractor beam? A wormhole? - K.
