Sometimes in life & photography the choices we make are 'spot on' and other times, not. Tonight I had the option of watching the Aurora 4th of July Fireworks from the Indiana side of the river or photographing them from the Kentucky shore. Luckily I picked KY. If not, I never would have met Dr. Duffy (not his real name), seen his home (in a beached boat), or accepted his invitation to join the largest party of the year. Duffy leases the land that was once the Aurora Ferry Landing and is working to make the beach front into an entertainment facility. His energy is infectious and I have no doubt that he will be successful, and that I will return again. The view from his front yard is spectacular.
