Every year my aunt hosts a 4th of July party. And every year I say I'm going to photograph it. I finally did.
This year I felt more like being a bystander than an active participant (anti social). I had very little sleep the days before and was shutting down. Plus, we still had a week of fun to go with family in town. I just needed some sleep. I held back, but still glad to make these snaps. Next year I'd like to do a better job of telling a story.
And a group photo.... Why haven't we ever taken one?
