Event Photography: Tucson’s 2009 July 4th Celebration

 This past Saturday was our nation’s 233rd birthday. This All-American event was celebrated with parades, speeches, picnics, and fireworks.

Here in Tucson, it was a great day to take Old Glory for a bicycle ride. And that’s just what I did. Taped a small flag to my tire pump, then stowed the pump and flag post in a saddlebag…

After the bike ride, it was time to return home for a siesta. Then, as evening approached, I headed out again. Wasn’t about to miss the fireworks display over Downtown Tucson. I staked out my vantage point, a parking garage on the University of Arizona campus, well before sunset…
