My blog is primarily about life here in Singapore. But I can’t not address this…CBS Boston apparently altered the picture when showing the fireworks. Using whatever the video equivalent of photoshop is, they made it appear as if the fireworks were happening behind such Boston landmarks as Quincy Market, Fenway Park and the State House.
Look, I realize that CBS might want to “highlight Boston,” but the Boston fireworks are spectacular as they are…over the Charles River. They’re choreographed to the music, for starters! They’re some of the most elaborate fireworks displays in the country! They don’t actually NEED further embellishment!
I mean, we start off with the 1812 overture, with the last 45 seconds accompanies by cannons and choreographed fireworks…firework accompaniment starts at 2:17. This is the START of the fireworks show, not the finale.
Seriously…no help needed to make them cooler.
