So yet again, Bugle-Dad-birthday (and a wedding to attend) meant that Mr & Mrs Bugle could not, and possibly will never manage to attend the biggest and best fireworks display held in their back garden (almost). So instead, to compensate I have re-lived the event by tragically staring into my laptop screen, whilst waving a sparkler. More below:
Lovely high definition video of the fireworks, from a Nokia phone (youtube user macintoshmorrisson)
An historical perspective on bonfire night in Blackheath from Andreas Moser, with links to more youtube videos.
“As far as I am aware, this is the only country that annually celebrates the failure of an assassination attempt on its head of state.”
When you put it like that, it does sound a bit odd…
Another HD video of the fireworks (no point in watching them at a lower rate!)
Great photo by Liam Hayter. Makes me wish I’d been there.
Blackheath fireworks were great. Lewisham Council showed Greenwich how to do it: big, not too long, no awful music. http://yfrog.com/eqt1hfj
All of Blackheath is engulfed in a thick low-lying smoke. Quite amazing, feels like a film set.
Blackheath fireworks. The best thing Lewisham Council does. http://twitpic.com/34joan
Apart from, you know, the schools, hospitals, GPs, libraries, etc etc :)
