A quick post with some of the more weird and comical fireworks I found yesterday, featuring ever-weirder clip-art usage and ever-more-beautifully-strained cultural references ("The NY Mets Are The Most Explosive Squadron!").
Coincidentally, this is my first attempt at indoor iPhone photography, a critical mobile-phone function for ol' Mr. Sasser. I'm impressed overall — the shots look pretty good, as you can see, although it took a steady hand and gobs of Photoshop color correction. I do quite miss the awesome macro/auto-focusing lens on my old Sony Ericsson K790a, but that's the official end of the list of things I miss about my k790a, and that feels very good. As a side note, the iPhone caused a small-scale teenage excitementriot in the fireworks store — even the mostly-toothless (serious) old firework store owner excitedly asked me to turn the phone sideways so he could see a web page rotate right before his eyes. Yeah, I'm guessing this iPhone thing is going to do all right.
