Relying on the 5-stop vibration reduction of the Fuji 18-135mm zoom

It was raining last night in New York. The Empire State Building was lit with red, white, and blue, and the spire was enshrouded in a mist that soaked the colors into the night sky. I was feeling lazy and didn't want to set up a tripod so I grabbed the Fuji X-T1 and put the 18-135mm zoom on it because of its 5-stop vibration reduction. I took a series of shots, all around 1/10th to 1/20th of a second, hand held. All of them were sharp. My favorite interpretation is a shot of just the spire lit in blue, reaching up into the black sky, and surrounded by a red glow from the lights below.
