Fall Macro

My good friend and co-worker, known on pbase and zooomr as sid6581, lent me his Canon 100mm Macro lens to use for a bit on my new Canon 40D.

It's a stunningly capable lens, and a joy to use. You put it on your camera, look throught the viewfinder, and suddenly, there are new subjects everywhere! Almost anything can be a good photo subject if you can just get close enough. Now I have to save up the $450 to buy one of these for myself!

Click through the image below to see my smart set of fall macro shots. Please add some comments here, or on zooomr if you are a member. If you aren't, and you have a camera, join up, it's free! I'd love to know what you think. Thanks!

Date Night Neon

The wife and I got out for a simple date tonight. Dinner (Mexican), and a walk around Mt. Kisco. We had a great time, and I got some great neon shots. Click through the soup for my Neon Shed smart set.

Croton Harmon Open House 2007

The boys and I went to the annual Open House at Metro North's Croton-Harmon Shop today. It's my fourth visit, and was great as always. But this year, like last year, the lines to get on the free ride up to Bear Mountain and back were to long for me to bother waiting.

I got a handful of interesting shots. Click through the bearings below to see my Zooomr smart set of them:

It's been a while since I've posted...sorry for that, if anybody is actually reading my blog...Here's two things I missed blogging when I should have:

First, I recently got a new 17" MacBook Pro. It's my first Mac, and my second ever Apple product. I bought an Apple IIe when I was a kid, that was my second computer after the TI 99/4a. I'm still getting used to it, but I'm very happy with it.

Second, we went on our annual trek to Montauk, NY a few weeks ago, and I got some great pictures, especially the beautiful sunset below. Click through to the Montauk 2007 smart set.
