And are they ever noisy when they explode, especially the 5,000 roll that never seems to end ... yikes! There is a company that sells a 16,000 roll!! Fantastic colors and designs in your capture, Susan!! The Chinese New Year is quite a celebration here as well!! Excellent capture!!
Much Aloha,
Stan Contrades

This is spectacular! So very rich in color and detail! And what a wonderful idea. I have to say, I am working on a larger hi-res monitor tonight and everything is much more colorful than usual. This is a real dazzler! Love this shot.
