London, Big Ben in Flames

London, Big Ben in Flames

The brilliant lancework fireworks from Tower Hamlets Fireworks Displays in London in 2006.

It is always good to see different shapes and patterns being used and this one must have looked very impressive, burning on a cold November night.

This must be something along the lines of what Guy Fawkes was aiming for. The symbol of government and power smouldering into ash.

Some people celebrate the foiling of the Gunpowder Plot, the way King James intended, some celebrate its attempt (more common nowadays). The main thing is we celebrate a man's willingness to make a stand to make a change, of course, we cannot condone his methods but it is said often of Guy Fawkes that he was "The only man ever to enter parliament with honest intentions."
