Mass Observation Project: Celebrations

New Years Eve, then New Years day. These happen to be from last year as the fireworks for this year were cancelled when someone realized (on the actual day, probably when the fireworks techs showed up to set up… ) that there was a concert in the theater building and therefore the fireworks display couldn't be set up or fired. The next day is the Polar Bear Plunge for those so inclined.

      Still great photos , The polar bear plunge looks rather like my childhood" summer" plunges in the cold North sea. it was always cold but I braved it always until my teeth couldn't stop chattering!!! you've brought back some nice memories thanks.

      Looks very much like the Polar Bear plunge in Port Dover Ontario Canada every Jan.1st! I draw the line at this celebration.....lol
      Even taking pictures of it can be risky business....
      I love those fireworks shots though!

      A very festive one - shooting straight to the "roof" of the sky...
      And a very chilling one - it's so much more fun to watch (at least for me), brrr !
      But both - oh, so exciting :) !

      Awesome post - so much variety! I love the great exposure and the movement captured in the second shot. The Polar Bear Plunge...I'd rather be the photographer, thank you very much!
