I finally decided to take advantage of the incredibly warm weather and walk around Delaware Park for the first time since I arrived in Buffalo. The area around Park Lake next to the Albright-Knox Gallery reminds me a lot of the Museum Campus in Chicago. One big difference though is the lower illumination compared to Chicago. Delaware Park is markedly dimmer after sunset, being situated in a predominately residential area far away from the downtown light sources. It makes getting clear handheld night time shots much more difficult, requiring me to use higher ISOs and deal with more image noise. The night sky ends up noisier since there is less light being thrown upward. I hope to go back soon with my tripod and get much improved shots.
