Wider and Wider

Not that I expect anyone to notice except the photogeeks, but I got a new lens a couple of weeks ago. If you did see any shots that looked like a wiiiiide angle, that's why. It's a 10-22mm, almost as wide as my old Minolta fisheye, but not so distorted (although faces up close do look pretty whacked). I've been collecting a set of photos I've taken with it here: 10-22 Wide Angles. Some faves from that set:

Oops, you got me again with the fight, but thanks for seeing it through! We so appreciate being able to kind keep up with the growth and every-dayishness of the family. Also, love your photos. The ice formations and scapes are amazing. I find quite a fascination with waves here but have not been able to do them justice. Pearl

LOVE this last shot most of all!

Thanks, Kaili. I love that one too -- seems to capture something special about the Summerland agricultural landscape.

Glad you're enjoying all of these, Pearl. I've been a bit lazy with updates lately, but still taking lots of photos. I could see waves being a fascinating subject -- but you'd probably need better gear...preferably waterproof.

Wow. I might have to take you up on the offer to borrow the lens...

Please do. I remember your generous offer to lend me a 50mm before I had mine too. This 10-22 is a bit of an odd duck, only useful occasionally, but for those moments it can be pretty dramatically cool.
