Lord Mayor's Fireworks

Despite turning up an hour early to nab a good spot, there was no way I was setting up my tripod in the crush. I'd have been lynched. So the planned beautiful long exposures, flares unfurling like flowers, went out the window, and in came some wide-aperture abstractions.
 (This one's not a firework but a lovely sparkly bow in the hair of the little girl in front. Dammit, she was so excited she couldn't keep still for me to take a pic that's in focus but I'm rather enjoying night-time images that have a certain twilight quality to them.)
Altogether now, oooh, aaah.
