Porno for Pyros*

Wellington's annual Guy Fawkes night fireworks display went off with a bang last night (sorry, it had to be done). I wandered up to the top of my street for one of the best views in the city, and snapped a few pics. Handily, my camera has a 'fireworks' setting, and it did the trick. Technology eh, what will they think of next? There have been calls for the total banning of fireworks sales to the public, which I think is a good idea when you read things like this. And I'd say this would have to be the world's most costly sparkler. Thousands of people lined the foreshore, and my street was jam packed with cars but it was fairly easy to get a good vantage point. The weather was perfect, calm and still on the water, not like the afternoon when I went for a ride and had to battle gales on the return leg, with waves battering Oriental Parade, but miraculously it all died down in time for the spectacular display of pyrotechnicality (did I just make up a word?).
*It's a band... a great band.
