the building.

the elevator to the top.

the ladder to the tippy-top.

cafe rio and other necessities going up.

seriously so happy with the view.

which looked like this + sunset & lightning.

the fireworks.
(i love how it's just one sad looking firework.
i took over a dozen of these shots, most of them show nothing but black.
fireworks, i have discovered, are camera shy.)

the sparklers.

and a little red, white & blue.
