The Lens

You may remember last year I bought the Sigma 70-200 2.8 APO DG HSM. It has proved to be every bit as good as the Canon. I have found it to be a superb lens for sports. The 2.8 aperture works great for hockey and other indoor sports. Well soccer season is apon us and I picked up the Sigma converter it's a 2x EX DG. Here is the picture of it all assembled. It's freakin huge. The 20D body looks dwarfed. I am glad I have a mono pod. I will let you know how it performs and post some samples. Posted by Picasa

The New Wheels

As I had mentioned I had my trusty Giant Sedona bike stolen from my garage. Locked and all they cut the lock and gone gone gone it is. So..... I bought a new one this time I got a Gary Fisher hybrid. It is a very nice ride and time will tell how durable Posted by Picasa

Ridin and Shooting

Jackie and I where out for a bike ride to the airport and on the way back we where both takin a few shots here and there. She had grown quite fond of her Minolta Dimage Z3. It is a pretty good camera to bad they stopped making them. Posted by Picasa

Windy Landings

I was out at the airport for a bike ride and this came in low and slow. The pilot was landing into a gusty 40 km head wind that was trying to blow him all over. Posted by Picasa
Kris and I got out for a quick burn around McArthur Park. We discovered that it is about 4 km from door to door doing one lap. Kris averaged about 18 km per hour. I took this shot from my perch atop my bike. i must say its kinda hard to get a shot while riding using my trusty little Kodak 7440. Posted by Picasa
