The Fourth of July

Three days ago it was the fourth of July and the US was celebrating independence day with fireworks. Being in NYC we watched a huge fireworks show over the Hudson River. And if anybody asked where we are from that days its Australian because I dont think they would be too happy. And so at 6:00 we left for Manhattan. And got ready for lots of big crowds!!!!! When we got there we walked and walked and walked and walked until we got to an area. We sat down and then a minute later were told to stand an move up so we did. "Stand up becuse lots more people are coming so make room" said a policeman but that did not work and people stayed put! So we sat there for a really long time watching it get darker and darker until at 9:20 I stood up ready for it my camera on the firework setting and then Boom up went the first! It was funny cause we were cramped in waiting but when it started the all moved back for a good view. It was about 25 minutes long which was nice. There was lots and lots and lots of them all different types. I took some really good pictures. Hope you like em! Oh and also I had forgotten how load they were so surprised me!
