I left my (firework) hearts in San Francisco

Heart-shaped rockets explode high over San Francisco Bay. I never knew you could get fireworks this shape...

San Francisco, California
April 2008

When was that taken? I don't remember hearing any fireworks last night! Then again, given that we were in the Magnolia brewpub on Haight sampling American cask beer on handpump, we could have missed the start of World War 3.

I think I have seen the heart-shaped ones before, they are waaaay cool though....

Wednesday night, from the HP boat trip (HP laid on the fireworks!)

Hope you're enjoying SF - we're way up the state at the moment, exploring the northern coast and the redwoods.

Ah, on Wednesday we were still on Kaua'i, the 4th largest of the Hawai'ian archipelago.

Helma's been ill today, so the planned bike ride over the Golden Gate bridge got scrubbed. Hopefully she'll be OK again tomorrow, when we're planning to get the ferry to Vallejo and then the Vine bus (route 10) to Napa town, and then up the St Helena Highway to go winery-ing.

I had no idea they came in that shape, either.

You can make fireworks in pretty much any planar shape; the opening night of the Bath Festival a few years back had fireworks in the shape of the festival logo.

Edinburgh's had heart shaped ones for Festival things a few times.

Also ringed planets and something looking hideously like the BoS logo....

Ah, you should have been to Martin E's talk at Eastercon last year, where he explained the arcane mysteries of shaped-display fireworks.
