I stopped by the memorial on my way back to Pittsburgh from Ashburn. It was pretty cold and almost dark so I didn't walk the trail, but it was a pretty lovely memorial.
Several factors played into my decision to buy a new camera: lack of self-control, low-light performance, size/weight, moving up to a full-frame sensor, megapixels, support, upcoming travel, and some other minor things. All of that resulted in my buying a used Sony A7ii.
It showed up yesterday so I charged it up and took it out to takes some test shots. As much as I love shooting on my phone, and as good as the Pixel 2 camera is, phones just aren't great at shooting in low light.
