Edinburgh by night (again)

I eventually managed to persuade myself to get off my chair-shaped arse and head down to Tesco at Duke Street to procure some urgently-needed feedstuffs at getting on for nine this evening, and while I was out-and-about, I took the opportunity to snap a few photos of the city by night. The ability of my camera to take hand-held photos in darkness never ceases to impress me. It seems to view the world in a clearer, brighter, sharper way than the human eye can, and everything seems to glow. Mind you, my human eyes probably aren't up to much these days!
