This was the source of all the smoke. The firecrackers were inside the cage, lit by 2 fellas with full safety gear, who then held it in place with a stick with a hook on the end.

This was the final flurry at the end. The crackers were in long strings, that had a load at the top, presentinf a final, chaotic crescendo.

I was a bit disappointed, as I could see the flames from the crackers through the viewfinder, but all you can see in the photo is smoke. Must have missed it. Or it's burnt out.

A tribute to your ability to move through a scene unnoticed. I always attract attention as I lumber around and someone is always looking into the lens wondering why I'm taking their picture.
