Fire Flowers at Night

IMG_2253

Fireworks are romantically called 花火 or “flower fire” or “flowers of fire” or “fire flowers”, depending on your poetic preference of word order. A large fireworks festival is held every year in Tokyo Bay. People crowd the streets with lawn chairs, vendors line the streets, and boats filled with revelers cruise the bay. Some people like the largest, most colourful explosions; I prefer the moments when smoke fills the sky and is tinted by residue flares.
