Capture fun on the Fourth
Last year's July 4th celebrations ended on a scary note in St. Pete Beach and Treasure Island when fireworks malfunctioned. John Wetzel, of Treasure Island, captured images of the explosion and provided pictures to tampabay.com. The photo above also was published in the St. Petersburg Times the next day.
Others shared photos of fireworks that went off without a hitch. See this photo from Vinoy Park by Eric Vichich. Larry McKinnon shared this one from Safety Harbor's display. And Davia Deplanche recently submitted this one of the scene from her Clearwater home overlooking the intracoastal.
Make sure to have your camera handy today at your family BBQ or fireworks display, and e-mail your pics to firstname.lastname@example.org -- make sure to include your name in the message and some info about the photo. You also can join our community photo gallery and build your own galleries.
