(b) Firework Tower Frames

Tultepec, Mexico

The three towers or "castillos" in this shot compose the winning entry from another Tultepec, on the outskirts of Toluca (Mexico state's capital). Impressive and imposing enough as un-lit skeletons, they were then transformed into the most transfixing of firework shows. So much knowledge and skill went into its construction, though an absence of Spellcheck in pyrotechnia was evident--in the tower on the right, "mexiquense" was spelled "mexiquence." Mexiquenses are we, the residents of the state of Mexico, and in light of the show's excellence, we were very forgiving in the spelling department!
