Anyone know what's going on at the Middle School grounds?

I got to photograph Charlie 3 times: at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic in 1979, at the Savoy in Manhattan in 1982 (as part of a "Carmine Appice & Friends" show, where the below picture was taken), and in Champaign, IL, in 1985 at the first Farm Aid Benefit Concert.

Always a great show................

Usually, I'm shooting fireworks for about a week leading up to the 4th and sometimes beyond, so it feels a little weird to be doing almost nothing in that regard..................but EVERYTHING is weird this year, so you roll with it.

Of course, Hackensack's fireworks got Corona-cancelled, but some thoughtful neighbor put on a short show in the municipal parking lot behind me on 7/3. I caught the end of it and combined that video with the 7/4 Empire State one.

On the 4th, I managed to get a few shots from home, courtesy of some local - and probably-unlicensed - pyrotechnicians. The images with the full moon were probably in Teaneck, while the others were most likely in Hackensack.

I wanted to see if I could capture the ones going off on 7/4 on the Empire State Building on video, but it was pretty hazy and not easy to see the ESB from 10-12 miles away. I may have zoomed in a bit too much - over 42x is not recommended and this was 51x - and it was difficult to maintain a focus, but at least I got something:

Can this year get any weirder?

How they'll caption this year:

"19 totally kicked 20's butt!"

1-8. I did a walkaround last month to shoot the new drainage equipment in the 150-170 Main project vicinity.

While I was standing at Main and Mercer, the Susie-Q gates sounded, flashed and came down - something I hadn't seen up close in years, so I hustled over to the tracks and..........

9........shot the train as it approached Moore St, it approached Main St, the ugly cars went by,

12......and as the dirty rear end headed west.

I'll bet the people who will be living in the newly-constructed residential units won't be too thrilled with this noisy ugliness rolling by every day. Maybe the Susquehanna could spring for some new paint for their trains? That's just fugly.
