Oops. Part of the reason I went to Richfield's 4th of July Carnival was to take pictures. Unfortunately, most of them turned out like this one below.
This is the only one that came out somewhat decently. I can still see a little bit of a blur on one of the food stand workers.

It was a night of photography fails. Besides just taking photos, I also wanted to see if my camera would capture the fireworks on video. But, 3 minutes before the fireworks were scheduled to start, I started up my camera. The screen flashed "insufficient battery" and died. Fireworks aren't exactly a daily occurrence so it'll probably be a year before I'm able to try again. Oh, well. Now I know to keep an extra pair of batteries in my camera bag.
But, on the bright side, the fireworks were great and I had a fantastic seat.
