    I didn't anticipate taking pics of fireworks so I left my tripod a home. Met some family up at Worlds of Fun for 4-5 hours before their fireworks show. Ended up walking back out to our cars before the show so I grabbed my camera for shits & giggles.

    Me thinks this would've been cool if I had my tripod. Only pic that came out decent.

    Lesson learned, always bring your tripod.

    Not bad for no tripod. Maybe could have left it on the ground rested on something slightly pointed straight up with remote timer?

    Nonetheless, not bad still.

    every one of my firework shots turned out like shit. total and complete shit. even pp couldn't save them.

    And then I went to a car show and air show the next day. Battery died just prior to the Blue Angles.

    Last weekend was a giant ball of uberfail in my life photography-wise.

    yeah.

    was going through the shots I got of the air show and I had dust on the sensor. So not only did the battery die before the premier part of the air show, but every shot I did take came out with dust spots.

    I'm more pissed now than I was before. Over 300 shots of the planes, and not one is worth a shit (more than 1 speck of dust). It's time to sell this bitch and buy something w/ a dust reduction system (XTi or, god willing, a 40d).
