photo of the week: boom!

Wondering why it was so loud in Oakland on July 4th, and why it seemed like the noise was never going to stop? That's because people dropped some serious money on illegal fireworks. This is part of a pile of spent fireworks at Union Point Park. There were other smaller piles, and even a few cases where people had dragged the remains over by the overflowing trash cans, but it all added up to a lot of money gone in a flash.

I noticed a significant increase in fireworks this year. Even went out on the porch to try and see where all the racket was coming from. Apparently it came from all around.
