Almost instantly, I was wishing I had my better camera and telephoto. My G11 did pretty well, though, and as the daylight faded to magic hour and the moon rose, well, it was a photographer's dream. Just as much as I wanted a different camera, I also wanted to be out there, trying this still-foreign form of bicycling. As luck would have it, my new friend Anna is taking me today!
