Another late night outing -- I was out past 2:00 am this time around -- and another photo for my long-running "85258" project, wherein I'm photographing the neighborhood within walking distance of my house.

(As an aside, I was using a different camera this outing, as my good friend Jeffrey let me borrow his Sony A7RII body and Zeiss Loxia lenses. This photo was taken using the 50mm lens, which is practically a telephoto compared to the wide-angles lenses I typically prefer, and I must say that I am quite impressed by the image quality from this combo. It's such a treat to manually focus a lens that was designed to be manually focused versus the focus-by-wire crap one must suffer with when using autofocus lenses manually. And because I must very carefully position the plane of focus for various technical reasons, I always focus manually when I'm photographing at night, no matter which camera and lens combo I'm using, so working with a manual focus-only lens is no hardship for me.)
