There are times when we face “low light” conditions and there are times when we face the challenge of “Err, excuse me, who turned the lights off?”.

For those of you who like the techy details, at ISO 800, even with an f/1.2 lens wide open, I was still shooting at 1/20th of a second. But, as somebody remarked to me only this evening, there are times when you just have to get the shot. So I did.
And it seemed to be just as interesting to them as it was to me.
