New Year's Eve is my son's birthday. We celebrated with lunch at one of his favorite restaurants, then after that, went to the mall to pick him a cover for the Kindle he got for Christmas. That evening we went to see the fireworks.
The New Year's Eve show here is always better than the 4th of July show. For one thing, it's earlier. It starts at around 8 pm instead of at midnight. The other thing is that it's DARK. On the 4th of July, even at midnight, it's not really dark here, more dusk than night.
Both photos are unretouched.
