20 Instagram Photos of Fireworks That Don’t Suck

Perhaps between the hours of nine and ten last evening you were browsing Instagram, thinking, “Thank God for this app! How else would I know what fireworks look like?!” Yes, the Fourth of July is a big day for amateur photographers who don’t realize that their cell phones do not offer the best technology for nighttime photography. In my own personal feed were lots of blurry and grainy photos featuring trickles of light resembling bright weeping willows. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of Instagram users who know how to use the photo app pretty well (or, more likely, got very lucky). Here’s a collection Instagram photos of fireworks that are actually worth a “like.”
