After a 15-hour light show across the blackened and smoke-filled skies, I hit the streets of Hamburg, Germany at day break to see the Aftermath. The destruction and refuse left behind surprised me. Germans are so particular about their trash, I was humored by the contradictory actions of their New Year’s celebration. So, I picked up my Samsung Galaxy, shot a few authentic photos and realized the mayhem showed an original depiction of life.
This project is proof that inspiration can be found anywhere.
The Essence of Life, Part 1
A photographic display on the essence of life, as seen through the destructive nature of fireworks. No adjustments were made to the photos, and no tampering of objects for this project. Photos were taken just as you see, although minor cropping and color enhancement was used via Picasa Web.

Until tomorrow –
