Photographer's Note

Curios visitors at the line of exploded firecrackers while explosion still continuing on next part.

Paramaribo hosts firecracker explosion ceremonies usually every end of year because its ritually coming from her multi cultural nationality. Ancestor of Chinese inhabitants arrived to Suriname as contract (koelie = slave, carrier) workers approximately 150 years ago.

I was lucky at the last day of 2007 and found a higher place for photographing one of ceremony in town. This firecracker line was longer then 100 meters, more then millions of shots and hanged to wire on T shaped pipe supports. Millions of millions piece of red cartons are final result and they are melting easily if raining.

You can see also still continuing explosion of same firecracker line is at first WS one and final explosion of box at next WS two.

You may ask for cropping, cleaning but as you know this is not my way, manipulating photos while playing its real captures, changing colors etc.

Many cheers you to all,
