Failing to photograph fireworks

Why do people think that they are going to get good pictures of fireworks by using the camera in their mobile phone? It’s just not going to happen. Mind you, all the people with point-and-shoot digital camaras were probably even worse off, seeing as virtually all of them were using the flash in a futile attempt to illuminate the entire night sky.

    Hm, muppets indeed.

    Jen won’t let me buy a new camera, which is annoying. Shame I’m going to anyway.

    Some reasoning based on “already having one” or something. IT’S NOT HOW IT WORKS!!!!!! :-)

    I half-fancy taking the camera to Glentress tonorrow, but I won’t, and will take shots of Gordon in 2 weeks (and him of me) instead.

    Firefox is shagged, It decided to lose all my bookmarks (and still won;t import favourites from IE without crashing (fresh install and everything)

    My desire for a camera is increasing, and I will claim a bit against tax too, hopefully.

    OH FUCKNUTS, that’s just reminded me of something VERY important I need to remember to do…. oh flaps.

    New cameras are ace! ( My first results are at ) Being unable to get the best from them sucks ass though. Need to start reading up on such things now.
