Los Angeles illegal firework show 2020
This year for the 4th of July I went up into the Angeles National Forest to get a good view of downtown to show off the scale of the home-brew firework show going off around LA. I have watched the fireworks from the mountains the previous few years and this year during shelter in place Angelenos set off a record number of explosives. I put together a few images to illustrate this.
