Happy New Lens (27 August 2015)

Today I bought a new lens for my camera.  It’s a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle.  Tonight I headed down to Lamont’s Pier to try it out before the daylight disappeared completely.  It’s going to be interesting to experiment with the new composition opportunities that this lens will allow.  This is one of the photos I took with it tonight.

I’m building up quite a backlog of photos to be processed.  I expect that I’ll be able to catch up a bit when the weather gets even colder and I don’t feel like going outside.  On the subject of the weather…I couldn’t have been luckier a couple of days ago.  A group of us took on the 5 Ferries Challenge on Tuesday to raise money for the Beatson Cancer Charity.  Man, it was tough but we made it with only one retirement short of the full distance.  The weather was kind, the company was awesome, and the amount of money raised to support a very worthy cause was amazing - far more than any of us anticipated.  Thanks to everyone who helped, encouraged and donated.  I managed to take a few photos along the way, but I haven’t even looked at them yet.
