Night Views

Tripod, 70-210mm lens and cable release equals:

Late afternoon

Industrial night

The 70-210mm is quite a bit sharper than the 18-200mm at the long end off a tripod. I'm not yet sure about hand holding as the 18-200 has vibration reduction.

Olympic photos #3

We took Friday off to head back down town.

But Michelle really wanted to head over to Surrey on Thursday night to see the RCMP musical ride. But it was not to be. We arrived to find out that the tickets were gone within 20 minutes of being available at 3 pm.

First, the night photos from Surrey



No Tickets after 3.30 :(

Hmmm Donuts!

Don't tell Vanoc!

70-210mm test images

Picked up a couple of used lenses for not much money :) Some test images

It's been a while since I've taken a photo of the Jetta

Pretty sharp wide open

And very sharp stopped down

One more test shot

Pretty good for around $100 :)
