Let's be honest: Your fireworks photos probably suck. You were likely crowded in a swarm of sweaty people that proved difficult to angle your phone to the heavens, so instead you were left with a blurry mess.
Or, if you were like myself, you were probably miles away from the display, so what resulted was a terrible picture that not even the power of several Instagram filters can save. Hey, that's OK! Let's leave the professional pictures for those nerds on Flickr and commiserate together about how our pictures turned out.
We'll start with this picture from my roommate that was taken from our fire escape. The darkly lit, over-filtered picture basically embodies the -__- face. At least we have 364 days to practice taking the perfect shot.
