you've got a whole year to prepare for the next one!

Mark your calendar so you'll have everything ready next year before hand. Playing w settings last minute in the dark could definitely lead to errors.

You might try shooting Christmas lights from a moving car.

This falls into the 'botched' category, but then it was grab the camera and shoot w whatever it was set to. Taken when the light changed and I was turning left while the fire truck went straight.

Not bad, if taken with a dose of psychoactive chemicals!!! At least your 1/40 second exposure got the flashing lights!    Good stuff.

Yeah, I keep my cameras handy when in the truck and when I am out and about. 95% of my photos are "unplanned". I just make a record of my visual experiences.

Got this guy out of the truck.... sometimes it works out.

Thanks for sharing your "botched" shot.  Now we have two!  I wonder how many thousands were captured by various phones the last while.
