I’m testing out my new telephoto zoom lens and hope to put this into good use in the near future. This is slightly longer than my old lens, but a lot lighter also. It’s the EF70-200mm f/4L USM, one thing that’s missing is the IS (Image Stabilizer) which cost $600 more that I couldn’t afford and can do without at the moment. I have to make sure that I have a steady hand, which I also don’t have. So far I’m loving this lens, I need to visit the zoo or Biltmore for a real test. As for indoor still life, not so bad and my mom’s last orchid fell yesterday.
The video captured is very sharp and clear. My second sister is building her pet Lovebirds and Parakeet a new bird cage but I’m not sure how well they will get along. The yellow lovebird is very aggressive, and it’s a good thing that Mimi is a lot bigger and can probably defend himself.
My dad is helping my second sister with the bird cage.
It’s not completed yet, and still lacking the door. I think it might be finished today and will definitely have to go back for a visit.
I don’t know if this apply elsewhere, it’s illegal to ride the scooter on the road here, even in a 25 mph zone in our neighborhood. One of our neighbors got a ticket for riding a 4 wheeler yesterday, not surprise that he was reported in by another neighbor. This made me think of my sister that lives in Queens, NY. One morning she took her daughter to school on a bicycle and the cop gave her a ticket. The reason was because she’s an adult and riding a bicycle on the sidewalk. She went to court and the judge looked at the ticket and thought it was the most ridiculous thing, ripped it up and threw it in the trash. As for Lee, she has to ride it in our driveway only. This was taken right before dusk, I used a high ISO-3200 and there’s not a lot of digital noise as I feared before.
Max is going to sleep.
