My days in Tbilisi tended to involve walking around all day, then getting some dinner after the sun went down, followed by a stroll back to the hotel. I love night shots, and it was an opportunity to catch the lights and shadows of the old town after sunset.
My entree into photography was urbex, so I tend to consider a tripod indispensable while shooting. This is certainly the case when inside dark ruins, but can be cumbersome especially when walking around a city all day. I’m never going to give up the tripod, but since my camera produces decent shots even at relatively high ISOs, I’m learning to accept, even embrace, the candid handheld snapshot. Some of these are below.
