4th July 2002, Boston
Thanks to Eric Tucker and the organizers of Boston's 4th July festivities, I was given access to the firing barges situated in the Charles river. On one of the hottest days of the year, with temperatures over 100°F, I visited the setup to take these photographs. That evening, after a fabulous sunset, I was fortunate enough to be given a spot on the control pontoon where I took photos of the display itself.
