I didn’t manage to find a firework display to marvel at this Bonfire Night so instead I have gone looking through my travel shots for images that glow and fizz and give off all the luminosity of a good old-fashioned fireworks display, starting with an actual fireworks display, New Year’s Eve at Seattle‘s Space Needle.
Staying in the Emerald City, here is the brilliant interactive art installation Sonic Bloom in Seattle Center.
Fire and water in gorgeous harmony at Eternal Flame Falls in upstate New York.
Ahh sparklers – it wouldn’t be Hallowe’en or Bonfire Night without those fabulous fizzing bursts of light.
Another Irish Festival – the People’s Procession of Light leading in the New Year through the streets of Dublin.

Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end, – Virginia Woolf
Every phase of our life belongs to us. The moon does not, except in appearance, lose her first thin, luminous curve nor her silvery crescent, in rounding to her full. The woman is still both child and girl, in the completeness of womanly character. – Lucy Larcom
At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear. It is those we live with and love and should know who elude us. You can love completely without complete understanding. – Norman Maclean.
