We usually try to avoid the crowds when there is some sort
of celebration in town. (The exception being the
Solstice Parade.) This year however, I was looking for a nice Independence
Day Photograph for a project I'm working on. The thing is
I would not really have been interested in the normal
looking-up-from-the-crowd shot anyway. So earlier in the day
we spent some time scoping out a nice angle that would include
the Wharf and a more interesting Santa
Barbara view and this is the result. It always helps to scout
your locations ahead of time.

Happy Independence Day!! And thank you to all the brave people
in uniform who make this day possible.
