A teenager in Colorado mixing fireworks in a coffee grinder is recovering from serious injuries sustained when the fireworks exploded. Police say that 19 year-old Sean Ogden was trying to break down some fireworks he had purchased so that he could make bigger ones.
If you are planning on taking any pictures of the fireworks this 4th of July weekend, here are some hints to help make your pictures the best they can be. Be sure to use a tripod, this will help keep the camera still so you don't get a blur. You should also be using a slow shutter speed, probably a four second exposure to get the complete effect.
Forget about the dawn's early light, this Fourth of July is all about the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air and maybe even a couple of spiders. Those are the ones that, well, look kind of like a spider, anyway.
The fireworks will fly higher and longer than ever before at Monday's 10pm show in downtown Flint. The Flint Downtown Development Authority is sponsoring the downtown show this year and has added "high-burst' fireworks that can be seen from an even greater distance. Monday's fireworks are one of two scheduled this weekend in Flint.
