Marina del Rey Fireworks 4th of July (lots of photos)

July 6, 2013

Daytime, arrived early to get the best seat in the house.

Four of us friends had snuck in strawberry margaritas in a fruit punch bottle (Sergio is clever). We had chips and fruits to munch on and chairs and blankets to get comfortable. I brought my tripod and used it for the first time. Didn’t matter, because I didn’t really think through the moving landscape of boats and water as a backdrop against the fireworks. Yeaaaaaah no. As you’ll see soon enough. Next time I’ll get it right; damnit I better.

Nightfall, just before the sky party began at 9pm. We could see a sizeable barge that held the fireworks positioning itself in the center of the marina canal.
