THE STORY BEHIND THE PHOTOS

Summer means fireworks displays everywhere. But no one does it better than New York when it comes to July 4th celebrations. These are a few samples from 2016. (Note: several of these images are composites - I took a blast from one part of the image and copied/moved/ enhanced it for dramatic effect.)
