    Sounds like you had a little too much bang for your tastes. Short, sweet, and very expressive. Well done! ♥

      too much would be an understatement Kathy

  2. photowannabe says:

    Some traditional celebrations can get pretty noisy. Great capture of the “bang”.

    1. pravsphenomenon says:

      yeah they can and you end up getting all disoriented and hating the celebration itself

    I don’t like fireworks too close to my house. We always have fireworks on New Year’s Eve, Once my daughter’s ex ,had his house on fire by a piece of fireworks.

      I have started disliking the bangs and the booms.

    Here all the firework noise was drowned out by the storm hammering on the roof – PS my anti-virus software warned me that this site was “dodgy” but I decided to visit anyway – it is possibly due to a bad widget on your sidebar – you might want to check it out.

    Unfortunate but true… Diwali is NOISY. And the debris the next morning is worse.

    1. pravsphenomenon says:

      the colorful ones are a sight to watch. Love those. Its only the ones that go bang that puts me off

  13. Jyothi Nair says:

    I like these fountain kind of crackers too. They are a sight to watch. 🙂 I forget what they are called!

    1. pravsphenomenon says:

      sometimes I am thankful light is faster than sound

  15. LadyInRead says:

    though i did hear (!) that the Diwalis in India are not as noisy as years before.. everyone is now more conscious…

  16. Arija says:

    Looks great, sounds awful. I hate the noise too, and the stench.

  17. Oh yes! Not to mention the polluted air – that clogs my nose! Why do we end up spoiling the good stuff?

  18. ladyfi says:
