@Anthony Lambert: Anthony - good morning from Dixon, California - I'm on a short road trip.

Actually - this shot was hand held. It was my first session with the Sony A100 camera - which has internalized stabilization (in the camera body). Paired here with a Minolta 28-135 f/2.8 zoom lens. It works very well. Loudest camera since the old Exa that my print shop teacher had me using while in high school. I don't use it that often and will probably sell it. Reviews say the newer Sonys are even better at night.

Anyway - thanks - and see you in the 'Joy of Light' ---

Wow, talk about Joy of Light. This one really stands out for your title.

@sherri: The 'Joy of Light' - There's a little irony here. The light I find most 'Joy' in - comes off one of those old buildings you shoot. I spend very little time 'on-the-town' and can't recall being in a movie theater in years.

Give me a garden full of dew beneath the just risen sun...
