Wow, thanks for the comments! It took a while to figure out how to caption the photos to help my friends who didn't go understand what they are seeing.
The camera I used is a Canon 1D MarkII. Its dust-proof and the ISO setting goes up to 3200 which makes no-tripod night shots possible. It is a very large camera, and I didn't feel comfortable taking pictures of people with it. The wielder of such a camera is definitely put in the "observer" category by most burners.
Thanks again. I have hundreds more, but these tell my little BRC story best.
