It always comes… not so much as a surprise, but more as a check point in the book of reality. The day that’s overcast, and you’re feeling ill; the day you’re complaining about shooting with a D1x and a 70-300 f:4-5.6 not a D3 and the 105 f:2.8 VR micro. It’s sure to be when the peach flowers are on the way out and the dogwoods aren’t in yet…. Just when life looks quite dull another little bit of life sheds the gloom and heads for the light. Their message is clear “get over it.”
Life’s like that sometimes -at least mine is anyway. But the truth being told, the 70-300 was pretty good lens for the job as the eggmass was above my head and it allowed me the working distance and yet focused close enough.
Perhaps this isn’t the most creative post for getting the “official” blog started [actually it isn't even open or official... yet] but hopefully it will give everyone something to read when they actually get here. [Its really boring to visit a blog's grand opening and then have nothing to read....]
