The fourth of July in America is a time for celebration, parades and cook outs. I plan to them all today and celebrate at the end with fireworks over Indianapolis. This image was made last year at the Carmel, IN fireworks.
I have shot hundreds of fireworks shows and frankly I was getting kind of tired of the same old stuff. Then I started this project called Around Carmel and thought it would be cool to have the Perfroming Arts Center in the foreground of a picture with fireworks going off all over. A few phone calls later I found myself on the rooftop of the Tarkington building with one of the best locations in town to see the fireworks. It was a perfect place to shoot and I came out with a lot of good images. The one above is one of those.
