COLUMBIA – This week Missourian photographers captured images of fireworks, soccer players at a unique camp, a wheelchair basketball scrimmage and children drumming to their own beat.

Fireworks light up the night over Jesse Hall on July Fourth in this photo by T.J. Thomson. The city's Fire in the Sky started at 9:15 p.m. on Friday. The fireworks were launched from the top of the parking garage at Sixth and Cherry streets and were choreographed to music broadcast on KBXR/102.3 FM.
