Casino

While on holiday at the French riviera, there was a fireworks festival making the Casino in Cannes seem like it was on fire.

Leaper

Leaper

During today's excursion with the Swedish Jaguar Club, not one, not two, but three XK150s showed up -- one coupe, one drophead and one OTS. This is the leaper on the OTS. It made our ten-year-old X-Type seem brand new in comparison. :-)
More images on Picasa for now.

Zooooom

Non-zoomed boat, 50mm, no crop

I don't know if all of you have thought about the actual difference between framing a shot with the zoom ring on the lens or just cropping afterwards - or how much a relatively inexpensive modern telephoto lens can magnify. I shot a few pictures while out bathing with the kids that I think will illustrate this.

Moonlight

While out looking for the Pleiades meteor shower, I took this exposure of the moonlit landscape.

No need for speed

No need for Speed

I saw this fellow crawling across our driveway the other day so I hurried back inside, gathered the camera and lens, made dinner and ate it, washed up and rushed out just in time to see him/her come out from underneath the car.

Pentax smc DA* 16-50mm F2.8ED AL [IF] SDM

I just pulled the trigger and ordered a Pentax smc DA* 16-50mm F2.8ED AL [IF] SDM lens from Adorama. $659.95USD was just too good a price to pass up, especially with this weak dollar.

Update 1: UPS should be delivering it any minute now. Opening this box and testing the contents will be a lot like looking at Schroedinger's cat; I don't know if this copy of the lens is a dud (too many have been) or a gem.
