    Now that is a wedding shot. If you turn it around the father is weeping at the bill he just received.

    so, finally got out for a little while today. Living in this area is nice, but the hoard of tourists this time of year makes it nearly impossible to get decent shots. Not complaining really... as it fuels the local economy. Decided I would wander over to Myricks Photo Shop to peruse the used lenses, when I came across a Vivitar 28-90 f2.8-3.5 AiS for $76. Seems to work ok on the D7000, but it will take a few (hundred) more shots to get used to manual focus. The jury is still out, but for a few bucks...

    Here is one of the first shots. Unfortunately was more concerned with focus than with aperture (f/3.5)

    Changed back to the 18-105 for this shot along the Pacific Grove shoreline. The Green Gables Inn: a Victorian conversion to a B&B. My wife and I stay there occasionally, even though we only live about 12 miles away. The center gable room has great ocean views.

    Great pic of a grand old building. That is one of the things I like about my area. We have many Victorian and other unique buildings.

    Thanks Falcon. When the tourist population subsides a bit I will shoot a few more of the hundreds of Victorians in PG. Down the road from this one are a couple of other B&B converted Victorians, and the recently renovated Bathhouse at Lovers Point.

    Sometimes you buy something for one reason, and discover that there is a whole different purpose.

    The Vivitar 28-90 f/2.8-3.5 is one of those items. Works well for general photography, but turns out it is an excellent Macro lens focusing down to < 4in. at 28mm. Still getting the hang of manual focus, and in the future I'll use a tripod (hand tremors), but I'm really starting to like this lens.

    Back in the days of film I had a Series 1 90-180 macro zoom for my Olympus OM2S Program, that would do 1:1. Expensive for the time, around $500. I had to eventually sell it as I hit hard times.

    Going through my back catalog to fill the 4 digital photo frames I bought when I was in B&H last month. Here's an undiscovered treasure, sometimes it doesn't matter how little you knew (shooting jpgs, compromise glass and bad lighting) it's the antiquity (5 years ago) that sells the shot.

    Priceless, glad you found that pic.
    Here is a shot from yesterday's pond walk. A Halloween Pennant in a typical for the species perching attitude.
    For all my fellow Americans, A Happy 237th! Be safe.
