4th of july ..

Plus golden ganesh episodes 1, 2, 3, 4 plus 5 can now be heard at's site .. :)


of the counties volunteer fire departments and their fire trucks ..

kind of impressive actually ..
even when viewed from afar...
the cacophonous noise of those fire trucks sirens
was .. err .. rather cacophonous .. :)

and then the boom of the
the fireworks, of course

and the relative stillness of the after

saying goodbye to the festivities..

but then waiting till the crowds leave before we head home ...

Very cool photos. You would have been a start photographer if you worked for MTV - back when MTV was still cool.

Mariana Soffer said...

I Like the picture with the foot, is really cool. And the Ganesh stuff is some great work.

Little Lamb said...

I love the 4th of July. Too bad I had to work.

SJ said...

Oh and Damn straight. I love hearing your voice!

foam said...

sj, thanks .. it's good to know i'm presently cooler than mtv ..
i haven't watched them in decades it seems ..

thanks .. :) i actually liked the picture of the foot too. i think the red paper is what makes it work in a way. and, i agree, the ganesh turned out quite well .. :)

little lamb,
ohhhh .. i'm sorry you had to work on the 4th. if anybody deserved not to work it should have been you.

damn straight you loved hearing my voice .. ..
even though the pitch was raised to make me sound younger ..

the foot
looks very much
like early di chirico --
the scale, the color, the darkness...

yours is a different kind of fourth celebration, you strange woman

Ruela said...

Devin said...

agree with SJ! thanks for this and I am so enjoying you and the others at Xdell's site with Golden Ganesh-can't wait to hear more episodes-best to you as always!!

foam said...

de chirico? really? you might be right .. i really had not seen that until you pointed that out. de chirico is an interesting artist ..
btw .. strange is good ... ;) .. thank you..

ohhhhhh .. i did see all those many pictures of the show. they are wonderful! my favorite ones were those that had this guy in them with a mowhawk and black fingernails ..

foam said...

devin .. thanks for visiting! ..
and thanks for listening .. we appreciate it .. :)

dianne said...

Looks like a great celebration, I love your photos of the night...and the Golden Ganesh is really cool, I love your accent 'Diane'...Pinetop is doing a great job, I cant wait to hear Boney, I wish I had been able to help out with the part of the Aussie gallery owner, cant wait to hear her accent...I just love American accents and there are so many. ♡

foam said...

yes, it was quite a party downtown. we walked to it just in time to catch the last 10 minutes of the parade and then watch the fireworks. but other then that it was a pretty laid back day for us. we had our family get together with relatives on the 3rd.
anyway, i'm glad you like the wild mountain laurel which is in the rhododendron family. i was actually thinking of you when i took the photo.

foam said...

i'm glad you like the ganesh and all our american accents. lol ..
i loved hearing everybody myself in these episodes.
i take those accents for granted, of course ..
i love hearing aussie and english accents myself .. :)

chickory said...

yay! small town parades are the best. we had the fire trucks too - i always think -wow i hope theres no fires during this. i think we should get your shadow and boneys shadow together. they have so much in common....

JohnB said...

that skyward photo of the streaming fireworks is amazing! it looks like some huge air-jellyfish the way you took that picture. how in the world did you get it to look like that (you don't have to answer, i'm just totally impressed)

Blue ridge mountains, I want to take be there hiking.

So the 4th of July was very noisy this year. I hope you used earplugs.

Anonymous said...

take be there
What did I mean.
And I don't think it was necessary for you to use earplugs from afar ...

foam said...

it was noisy, but not noisy enough for earplugs really ..
and you should come hike the blue ridge mountains ..
you would love it.

okay i won't answer that question, but you might want to check and see if your camera has a fireworks setting .. :)


X. Dell said...

Looks like you had a good time. In the penultimate picture, you look a little woozy. But in the last one, you look quite relaxed (in fact, that's a great HNT shot).

boneman said...

the only thing I don't like about the fireworks...OK, there's TWO things, but, no politics just now, eh?

The smell of the burnt sulfur brings out the fleas, ticks and Japanese beetles.
OK, maybe not scientifically proven, mind you, but I think, there too, see?

foam said...

boneman, you mean no money to pay for the darn suckers? a 5 year old tyke sitting in front of me was already wondering where that money was coming from...,
i had an okay time ..
i had to look up penultimate .. lol ..

The Phosgene Kid said...

Great shots!! Isn't a Ganache some sort of chocolate between cake layers?

Ruela said...

thanks ;)

foam said...

phos! you can learn all about ganesh by listening to the golden ganesh!!! ... ;)

ru, .. you're welcome .. :)

Mo said...
