Fireworks around the corner

4th of July fireworks in Boca Raton, Florida070412_DSC03585

We all have the tendency to assume we know our surroundings pretty well.

Every 4th of July I know all I have to do is step outside my front door, look down the main street and I will see fireworks. Florida Atlantic University puts on a show for the city of Boca Raton and does a pretty nice job. Since it's only a couple of miles away, I get a pretty good view. Not a great view, or exiting enough to photograph. The problem is the view is obscured by trees and houses. Since the whole show is only about 20 minutes, I didn't have time to drive around looking for a better location. Finally this year I decided to use my brain. It occurred to me that just two streets down from me there is a canal. What if...

Here is the whole series. Moral of the story: Don't take your turf close by for granted. Look beyond the obvious. Even if you think you know a place really well, there are always new ways to look at it!
