Freedom Over Texas Fireworks 2013
This is the view from our 12th floor balcony on Studemont of the fireworks finale at the conclusion of the 2013 Freedom Over Texas Independence Day festivities along Buffalo Bayou right next to Downtown Houston. Notice the crowds of people cramming the Studemont pedestrian bridge (that spans both the bayou and Memorial Drive) in the lower right corner of the photo. I'm not sure what the weight capacity of the bridge is but I feel quite certain that it was exceeded. Walking back from the festivities to our building, we weaved our way across it and I could feel it swaying (which is incredible because when you walk across it on normal occasions it feels immovable).
