(Columbia, SC) Fireworks explode over the South Carolina capitol ringing in the new year, on January 1, 2019.

Midnight nears in the capital city, the 90's R&B group En Vogue thanks the large crowd for coming out for the Annual Famously Hot New Year party, Mayor Steven Benjamin, takes the mic and thanks En Vogue, the crowd starts a countdown at "ten, nine..." "two, one..." then 24,000 people shout in unison, "Happy New Year!"


The first of many fireworks explode over the statehouse grounds. As I dangle over the edge of the ABC building capturing the rocket's red glare, a death grip on my Nikon, I wonder what 2019 will have in store for me, and for the people of this fair city... only time will tell.
