If I'd known what I was doing, these photos of fireworks would have looked like everyone else's. But I didn't. So what you see here is the result of the "wrong" shutter speeds and a shaky hand. And I must admit, the abstract artist in me is happier this way! By the way, these photos are uncropped and unmanipulated except for the usual editing.
I suggest viewing this gallery via the slideshow set at a 1-second delay to get the feeling of fireworks exploding before your eyes!
