On Independence Day I decided to make some images of a fireworks display. Straight out of the camera some of the images looked like globs of white light, but with some work I was able to bring out the individual colors of each burst of light, each multiple burst.


I was intrigued by how the images resembled colorful abstract designs, each lasting for only a second or two, and then fading away into memory.


Each burst of fireworks is unique and unrepeatable, with a limited life-span, much like you and I. What colors do we show the world while we are here? How do we share the multi-hued light of God’s love with those who are eager to experience it?


“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.” (Psalm 19:1)

  1. “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it” (Confucius). Thank you for revealing the beauty underneath the brilliant white light of the fireworks.


    1. Thanks, Patty. I hope you are enjoying the summer.
