Fireworks over Central Park

I was watching the fireworks last night over Central Park. As usual, a big WTF, I never got the big deal about fireworks. Until I did something new with it. I grabbed a pair of binoculars, and that changed everything! The details I had missed before. It's a total trip. Then I realized this is what it's going to be like taking movies in a few years. When I tried to capture the fireworks on my iPhone 6, what came out was grainy and ugly. Nothing near as beautiful and 3D as what I was seeing through the binoculars. Soon, we'll have devices that can capture more or less exactly what we see and share it with others. That'll be an interesting day.
