Rocket-Powered Pictures

Okay, one more fireworks post. I found lots of shards and rocket remnants in my city yard last week, and one of them was big enough to tote a D-SLR camera aloft, I'm sure. Well that's just what these folks did when they stuck a camera to a rocket and shot it into the air. Repeatedly. Actually, it wasn't a D-SLR, but a little pocket video camera. And it worked well regardless. The video is a bit disorienting, sure, but it's also pretty darn cool. Thank goodness for tiny digital video cameras, and the people crazy enough to risk their destruction in search of cool footage.
