More about the Camera & Lens

Since I have a bit of time … here is a photo I shot mostly to see how well I could focus. Then I wondered what would happen if I cropped the image. So you see the original and then a cropped version and finally a real close-up of Mr. Ant. I normally don’t share images of a higher quality (you can buy a print for that!), but in this case I am, since I want to show things in better detail.

Not bad for a hand held image!

Today’s five mile walk was so lovely: the cloud cover and temps in the 50s made it such fun. I didn’t see a ton to catch my eye for photos, but I did need to practice with my new 35mm lens so I stopped on occasion just to play around. Much of what I did isn’t anything workable, but here is a straight out of the camera (SOOC) image, just to share what it can do hand-held and with no post processing. Not bad, really! I will still think of my 100mm as THE lens, but this one seems as if it’ll be a great one for traveling.
