    The fireworks caught my attention and made me think of trying, not this year, my 120 Kodak Box camera with Tri-X on bulb. What the heck.

    I spent a week in June 1976 using the London Underground to travel around during my stop there. I then contrast that with the French system and compared the two as far as their terminals. London like Grand Central with people moving around. Same in Paris except the overhead catwalks were manned by French police carrying submachine guns. I always made it a point to get out fast. Unnerving, as at that distance they are no more accurate than shotguns.
