Guy Fawkes in Barons Court Road

While James has been visiting, we have been hearing and seeing the fireworks season get into full swing, firstly with the Dwali Festival fireworks last week and this week, and then this weeks lead up to Guy Fawkes this Saturday night. Coincidently this year is the 400th anniversary of the attempt to blow up the English Parliament.

Many of the locals in our area have been firing rockets from the street and rooftops, and earlier tonight someone just down the street let loose with some spectaular rockets shot over their terrace house roof, exploding above our street just a few doors down. This is the best I could do with my camera and without a tripod.

Not quite as brazen as last year's drama's when we fired some off our own 8th floor verandah and into the Thames, but still exciting to watch all the same.. And it gave James a good idea of what he can expect from this very English celebration if/when he moves here next year.
