It was not that cold, only around -7°C so my balls survived, my main problem in taking photos of the New Year fireworks was a bit different: the location. We had in Bucharest two such events organised in the street: one by municipality (read: the communist mayor of Bucharest) in Piața Consituției and another organised by some TV and radio stations in Piața Revoluției.
My lenses have their pride and refused to shot at the larger and probably better lighted event which was practically a disguised launch of a communist candidate for the next presidential elections, so I went with MTV: the lesser bad from two poisoned choices. And the price to be paid, in any of those locations, was to endure listening to boy bands. Probably my most demanding photoshot so far[*], worse than the Luxury Show, where the admission price was real money.
