Somerville Independence Day Fireworks

I covered the annual Independence Day fireworks at Trum Field for the Somerville Journal last night. The evening was chaotic, and I’m not exactly proud of the United States right now, but the fireworks sure did look pretty. And it was good to finally do some press photography after a long stretch of mostly food and headshots.

Here are a few of the photos. You can see the rest on their WickedLocal site.
