For 2015's New Year's Eve I was at a friend's house, somewhat far away from the fireworks action in the city. So instead of trying to capture the great fireworks panorama at midnight, I focused on one firecracker at a time. Not necessarily as exciting, but still kinda cool. I also took a couple of pictures of my friend's children. This is by far the best one.
