Another photo from my late-night, high-temp / cooled-camera testing in downtown Phoenix. As far as "test photos" go, this one turned out fairly well ... it's certainly no cat or brick wall -- by all evidence, the favorite test subjects of internet photographers everywhere! -- but I like it. 8^)

This photo was taken a little past 1:00 am. I was watched the entire time I was taking it -- from my initial setup to final tear-down -- by a woman in a Jeep Grand Cherokee parked across the street, roughly 150 yards away. I have absolutely no idea what it was that she was doing in the area at this time of the morning (I'll bet she was equally puzzled as to what it was that I was doing!) but at one point, I did see her looking at me through binoculars, so she definitely was curious. (Whenever I am photographing in this part of town late at night / early in the morning, I pay very close attention to the area immediately around me, because I don't want anybody to be able to sneak up on me. As such, it's my practice to slowly turn around in a full circle while the camera is exposing a photo and make sure that I know exactly where everyone in the area is located and make a mental note whether this has changed since the last time I checked. Even though I am always prepared to defend myself, if necessary, better safe than sorry, eh?)
