double-edged stick of fire*

My brilliance is perhaps overshadowed by my stupidity.

Brilliance: I had a coffee to stay awake for the fireworks.

Stupidity: I had a coffee... to stay awake... for the fireworks.

A smack to the forehead would be wise at this juncture.

Also wise at this juncture? ME SHOWING YOU FIREWORKS PHOTOS! WOOOOOHOOOOOO!

One of the neighbor kids playing with sparklers:

I used the moon setting so that I could capture the movement. I think they were trying to spell the abbreviation for Iowa, which happens to be IA. Yes, you see that too? Awesome.

Here are the rest of the 61 photos. Go. Look! Do it! Stop reading my words! Go look at my mad photo skillz, yo!

Sigh.

You people don't "listen" very well..11!!!!!@!!!

Bye.


*I told you I live in France, where we celebrate Bastille Day. (But really this is just a do-over of the July 4th fireworks which were rained out on the day.)

Those came out awesome! Way better than mine did... and I used a tripod.

Wow, cool pics.

I need to get myself a new camera. What are you using, camera-wise?

Dawg - I used a tripod as well, but the fireworks are directly in my backyard so it's hard to get a bad shot.

Avi - Thanks. :) :)

Michelangelo - It's a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W1 5.1 megapixel with 3x zoom. I think the lowest you can buy now is a 6 megapixel. I love the photo quality, I hate the low zoom ability, and it takes really awful video because it spends the whole time trying to figure out if it should focus close or far away, etc. etc. etc.

Dawg - PS - You rawk right back. I loved the explode-y photo you posted on your blog. :)
