Photo of the day: 4th of July

4th of July, a photo by The Bacher Family on Flickr.
For the anniversary of 9/11, I of course looked through my recent photos for one that would be relevant to the day. I chose this one from this summer's Independence Day.

We gathered at my inlaws' house on the 3rd of July to set off fireworks and watch the town's display in the evening. It was a beautiful afternoon, with perfect light for photos, and as I was going into the house at one point I noticed how nice the light looked on the hanging basket of flowers on the front porch. Then I saw the juxtaposition with the flag in the background, and immediately realized what a great picture it would make. I spent a happy couple of minutes trying different combinations of depth of field and composition. This is the one I like the best.
