LA is absolutely bonkers on the 4th, here is downtown and the surrounding area at three different focal lengths.

Were you at Kenny Hahn? It's been a freaking war zone for the last several hours. It was even worse before our dog died. We're in Culver City as well.

Yeah, right at the MLK memorial. My dog hates it too - fiancee was home with him.

That is wild (nice shots BTW). Given how many there are, I assume these are mostly amateurs. Are any of them professional fireworks shows?

There was one "real" show, visible in the first pic, behind the squareish building on the left side of the main cluster (Grand Park)

Personally, the older I get, the more I hate fireworks, and for a variety of reasons. I know there's no way that they're ever going away, but the damage they do to a large majority of domestic dogs and cats is inexcusable let alone humans with any sort of PTSD. FFS, a few years ago the city of Oxnard held their fireworks display directly across the street from their animal shelter. The second is a month or more of noise pollution in an already too noisy urban environment culminating in about eight hours of constant war zone raging battle fatigue until about three in the morning on the fifth. And then there's the smoke pollution and litter from what has to be hundreds of thousands of "rounds" of fireworks being set off.

Not just amateur, illegal. California is "Safe and Sane" and only in a few cities. Anything that goes up in the air or explodes is illegal except at licensed shows. Aside from I thought was gunfire before it got dark while I was out on a fast food run, really didn't have too much near us. Nothing that disturbed the dogs. Other family members reported hours long constant barrage of booms, flashes and bangs in their areas.
