We bought a new camera that's just slightly out of my league.
It has so many functions that our former six-year-old camera didn't have that I am determined to spend some quality time with it before we go on vacation.
With that in mind, Paul and I took a walk last Friday evening along the Shore Road Promenade. The sun was setting when we arrived, and it was dark by the time we arrived at the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, about a mile south. Perfect for trying the night and low-light settings on the new camera!

Not only that, but it was the first time I'd been so near the bridge at night outside of a car. There's a scenic pull-off along Shore Parkway as you near the bridge; even at 9 p.m there were about two dozen cars in the lot, and the benches along the water facing the bridge were full. It felt very "Saturday Night Fever."
