12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Fireworks on the Fourth

I like yellow fireworks the most because they remind me of how I feel old, traditional American fireworks would look like back in civil war times. I also loved the woman holding her child in the foreground. It adds the care and closeness that I feel embodies what it means to truly be an American.
