Our World Tuesday – Fireworks

Hey I know the Fourth of July is over. That is alright I’m still going to post fireworks pics from Tulsa’s fireworks show on the Fourth.


The show gets bigger and better every year and the fireworks ever more complex.


People show up and spend hours there picnicing and hanging out. We used to do that but we have figured out a way to get there late and leave early.  That leaves all sorts of time for people watching.


I love taking pictures of people taking pictures. Just so you know.


Like this, I’ve also captured the famous leaning tower of Tulsa. Don’t laugh too hard. A local lady got convicted of murder last year for pushing her husband out a window of that building.

Waiting for the #fireworks

Heather would never do that!! But I can’t tell what she is thinking right now. Oh well, back to the fireworks.


Like I said people show up all during the day, some spend hours out under the hot sun.


There is music and portapottys and lots of beer drinking.


The thing about fireworks show is that even though people come all through the day.

As soon as the finale is over everybody goes home.

Did you go see fireworks this year? Or did you stay at home and terrorize the neighborhood dogs?

    Great pics of the fireworks. I remember when the University Club Tower was built….back when it was straight. 🙂

      Well Tulsa has changed a lot. You notice that the tower is leaning “to the right.”

    Love your firework photos! They are beautiful. Pretty family shot! We also arrived later and was one of the few that late right at the end.. We missed some of the traffic that way.. Have a happy week!

    What a fun post for the day!! It does look as though a good time was had by all — well, probably not the woman who shoved her husband out the window, but who knows???

    Logan is looking like you’ve said “smile” once too often! We did not venture into town for the parade or the fireworks. Years ago I wouldn’t have missed it, but crowds have swelled out of proportion, standing 4-5 deep along the curb as the small-town parade passes. The line at Starbucks twists around the block! No thanks – I opted for a trail run instead and entertained patriotic thoughts.

    Yogi, you have some outstanding fireworks images here. I’m guessing that they are the result of that Canon SX40is. Don’t you just love the “fireworks” setting on that little jewel?

      I’m really liking my SX40 and the fireworks setting is great. Once I read the instructions on how to use it.

    Good shots of the fireworks and of the people . We were out in some little town somewhere in Alaska (actually it was Palmer) and didn’t do either one. I am guessing that fireworks have a little less pizzazz when it never gets very dark. Maybe they set them off on New Year’s Eve or something …. when they’d make more of an impression.

    I’m with you! I love taking photos of people taking photos! Worked well at my son’s wedding!
    I love the fireworks. Well-shot!
