Behold the modern nighttime CelebriGum photo! Still mediocre, yet a vast improvement over previous years' fall and winter efforts!
Two pieces of equipment make this possible: a cheap little clip-on LED light which illuminates the ledge, and the Sony DSC-RX100, an impressive pocket-size camera with full manual control, an f1.8 Carl Zeiss lens, and a huge 1 inch 20.2 megapixel sensor that allows for excellent low-light shots at high ISO settings, even with fast shutter speeds for freezing motion.
Your eyes may glaze over at camera specs, but Simon Helberg's engineering nerd character Howard Wolowitz on "The Big Bang Theory" would find them enthralling.
