Traveling into Washington, DC each year on the 4th of July to watch the fireworks is one of my favorite family traditions from my childhood. I remember laughing and playing with my siblings on the same red blanket, year after year, followed by colorful skies.
This year I invited my parents to join me at the Marine Corps War Memorial (also known as the Iwo Jima Memorial) to watch the fireworks. This was my first time setting up a tripod to capture fireworks and I am very glad I did! Even though the Washington Monument is covered in scaffolding, I still consider it to be uniquely beautiful in the photographs.
I have spent the last hour trying to choose a favorite from last night and am still bouncing back and forth between four photographs. I decided to let my mom choose her favorite for today's post :)
Today's Friday Favorite comes from the beautiful fireworks display in Washington, DC!
