Okay this post is a little bit of catch up. This past Saturday was my birthday. I know you want to know and I am not ashamed, so I will tell you how old I turned. I am now 35 years old. It looks a lot older on the computer screen than I imagined it in my head. I feel 25 (minus the rocking body).
My birthday present to myself was that oh so coveted wide angle lens I have been talking about! I got myself a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle. I guess it is considered an ultra-wide angle. Whatever they call it, I call it awesome. I bought it second hand from a person that just upgraded to a 5D Mark II (apparently they are not compatible), so I got a pretty good deal on a flawless lens.
My husband and I took the kids to the nearby state park to break this baby in. It was a great day and the last day we got to go without jackets. Yes, Cole is wearing his awesome cape and mask from Babypop Designs.
Boy, is this lens different. I am going to need a lot more practice to get used to it.
But at least I live where there is awesome stuff to photograph. I just need to get out and do it.
The kids really enjoyed their hike.
Here is just one more, I promise.
I used the new lens on all of these shots. I really like it and am very happy with it. Like I said, I just need more practice…lots more.
