New Lens

We finally expanded our lens collection to two. We just picked up a 17-40mm f/4 lens. This enables very wide angles, here are some test shots with it:

For this one, I was pretty much right next to Corrina, but because of the wide angle, it makes it look a lot further away.


You can also get a lot of a small space (ie. my condo) in the frame.



Of course, we'll still put the 50mm f/1.4 to good use as well. (We're watching the Cubs sweep the Brewers in the background)

New York City

We took a short trip up to NYC last weekend. We had to drop Sandra's dad off at JFK, so we took the occasion to wander around the city a bit. The rest of the set is on Flickr.

Chicago - July 2008

We got back from Chicago recently, and have a bunch of pictures (so many that my memory card was full on the last day, and I was furiously deleting blurry images directly from the camera to free up room). The whole set is on Flickr
