    Oh what a difference a day makes.....

    Yesterday we were all bundled up and freezing in the park.

    ......Today spring returned just as I got off the bus from B&H with a new 24-70.

    Hi Terry. I was in the park as well today, missed you. How did Joan like B&H?

    A little shopping... a little shooting... Sounds like a fun day. Nice shots. My favorites are 3 and 4. Enjoy that wonderful new lens.

    Congrats and you put it to good use. It's a tank though , I was not joking about that.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Hi Charles,
    Oh my goodness, B&H is unbelievable !!

    I felt like a kid in a candy store. I wish I had the money to spend.

    Yikes the D3 with this lens is a tank that has an extra layer of armor

    Thanks Cindy -

    One more shot that had very pleasing (at least to me) bokeh. I think you are also shooting the D300 and if you want to keep the weight under control not highly recommended - I needed something faster for indoors and what did I go and do shoot everything outside.....

    I already have the "beast", 28-70 f/2.8. There is a reason they call it the beast, but it does a great job.

    Hi Terry
    That lady on the blades seems to be very 'trussed up' under that kit! Great shot (other nice ones too).

    Congratulations on the lens - looks like you're having fun already. Have you hit anyone with it yet?

    Just this guy you know

    Thanks all - that is a regular spot in the park for skating and the woman is truly an exhibitionist. Lots of shots of her playing to the crowd.

    Jono - funny you should mention hitting anyone.....anything definitely!! I guess the enormous hood is a blessing and a curse.
