2013 Is Approaching…

For the fifth consecutive time, I was in charge of buying the fireworks for my housemates and me.  This is the result of that. €79.30 in total.

Using this simple android app called picplz (which you can download here) I made them look professional, even though they were cheaply shot with my old HTC, which has a crappy (colorwise) 5.0MP camera.
