#524 ... Fireworks

Guy Fawkes night again ... every year about a 100+ locals gather at the point on Wadestown Hill and watch the event on Wellington Harbour ... these kids, dressed in pyjamas and dressing gowns got onto the roof of the bus shelter at the bus stop to get a great view of proceedings. You can see the strip of lighting at the top edge of the Westpac Stadium ... just below the two flares and red bursts of fireworks ... in the centre of the photo is the railyards

... the fire works could have been celebration for almost anything you wished happening in the world at present ... the US Presidential election, the economic turmoil, sporting wins and even for us farewelling Arabella, our pet rabbit who died yesterday. Fireworks are still a magnet for people to come out and watch and celebrate.
