Nashville Fireworks Psychedelic Dreamtime

Those of you who live in Nashville know that in the last several years the city has really stepped up its game in the fireworks department. The show is not to be missed if you can make it down. If, however, the thought of the crowd or the traffic keeps you at home, here’s a little peek at what went down.

I went with an idea in mind to video the entire show in bokeh, the product of a happy accident the night before at a fireworks show in Hendersonville, TN. Watching a fireworks show that has been recorded is always disappointing. I can’t really feel the show and I always know the colors just aren’t as vibrant as when I’m there.

This is my attempt to capture the dreamy feeling I always get when watching this sort of thing. I’ve watched this several times and I love how calming it is. Just like Monday night during the show, I can push out all the noise from my mind for a bit and just enjoy the light. I’m very happy with the result even with the limitation of my field of view that night.

If you were there this is a different look at what you’ve already seen. If you weren’t there, well, enjoy.
