Neon Glow

Fireworks glowing in the night sky. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"There are two kinds of light--the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures." ~ James Thurber
The neon glow of fireworks light up the July summer night with sparkles, fire, spinning wheels, bright percussion blasts of light and sound. This was one of my favorites; simple, like petals of an opening flower in glowing colors of red, orange and yellow. It reminded me of a large neon light glowing on top of a local diner or old time hotel. I can almost hear that rhythmic buzzing of the ballast.
