A Day at the Shore with the Kid

For larger image click on picture.

Yep, that's him, my boy Will. We spent the afternoon and evening together doing what we enjoy doing together, shooting pictures. It was a grand day. Don't tell him him, but I love him a lot.

Now, notice that humongous 17-40mm lens he has mounted on that camera. It has a 77mm front glass. Holy smokes. 77mm. Am I envious? Do I covet my son's photo gear? There's something in The Ten Comandments about that I think

Yes, I am a sinner.

See below for a few images from the day, and check out Will here and here. His pix are almost as good as mine :)

HI MJ, I've migrated here from your post at aminus3, and am mystified by the term "flyover country" - what does that term mean? (I'm in Oz - Sidonie at aminus3)

That is a great lookin' lens! I had to replace my 24mm and my choices were between a used Minolta that never sold with a 55mm filter size or the brand new Sigma with something like a 65mm filter size. I went with the Minolta, because it would've have broke me to have to get filters for the Sigma. The size of the lens front was just past the Cokin A series filters I have.

You got some gorgeous shots from your outing together!
