Ok, according to this manual on taking night scenery I'd need a tripod and a self-timer, but it's hard to find a place to put the tripod if this done outdoors.

here's one I took:

what would be the best course of action if using the tripod isn't feasable?

You've got to be kidding us! No place to set-up your tripod? Anyway, if a tripod setup is not possible, look for other means to stabilize your camera, a tree, a utilitypost a wall etc. Good luck

nope, not from where I was standing. There IS a light pole across the street...but how the heck you stabilize the camera when you've only got two hands? Besides, the light from the pole could ruin the look of the picture.

And a parked car across the street? ... maybe...but I'd have to do a zoom on a tripod.

I'd LOVE to see a tripod that has very sticky feet....so that it frees my hands to take better shots. and if there's such a one out there, let me know!

You've lost me. You need a tripod with "sticky feet"? Why? Is the ground covered with ice?

Have you considered a tripod with spikes on the ends?

I still can't understand why you can't set up a tripod.

Step one. Stand against pole with your back to pole and rear of head making contact with pole.

Step two. Press camera tightly against face making sure to see into EVF.

Step three. Hold breath and slowly depress shutter.

To add slightly to what LoveLife said, set two second time, then hold breath and press shutter.

I don't understand the sticky foot tripod stuff either. For a quick and easy camera holder there is always a box or a plastic bin with a bath towel on top.
