There is beauty to be found in imperfect things. Wabi sabi is the Japanese aesthetic term used to describe it. This description and this magazine are both imperfect: thus, Wabi Sabi.

These images were recorded at the 2008 4th of July Fireworks display at the Danbury, Connecticut Airport. I was able to lie on the ground next to the array of mortars used to launch the fireworks into the air and shoot straight up at the explosion patterns. From this angle the patterns look like Hubble shots of intergalactic events or the back wall at a Grateful Dead concert. Either way, I find them interesting.
