The Blunder
Though I waited for 8 hours to capture the best moments of firework at Harbour Bridge, these are not some of the best images, sad part is that towards the end my camera batteries conked off, there are times when you feel you should have planned it better and this was one of them!! could have carried extra set of batteries .. anyways that was really a sad moment at the stroke of midnight, it was like mission unsuccessful. However good part is that i was there witnessing the moment live and in any case there were many photographers and cameras a simple Google search will give you enough pics, I could capture some good pics of the location (eh!! consoling myself !!). It was good, not spectacular as justified by others who saw it last year; as they say time was cut down to half and it was no where near to what they did last year (again good for some more consolation!!). Seems like owing to economic crisis they were also managing costs by burning less crackers !!

Rule of Bigger Blunder
Now when I am consoling myself, I got maximum consolation when Hari (my flat mate) told me the (mis) adventure of his friends – They bought a new camera on 30th Dec to capture the moments. On 31st they tried clicking pics just to find that there are no batteries; incidentally they left the batteries on charge back home! So my blunder was nothing compared to this one. So if you want to feel good – Find a bigger blunder!! Good lesson for new year!!
