In Memoriam for My 100-300mm Lens
For larger image click on picture.
Last week Will and I were climbing through WWII bombers. I had a belly pack on that had my long lens in it. I was shooting with my wide angle inside the planes. Well, I am 6'6" tall. The planes were not designed for someone my size. As I was contorting my way from the navigator's position in the B24 to the bomb bay catwalk, big guy popped out of the belly pack and did its best impression of a bomb as it sailed out the open bomb bay doors. Splat!
So I pulled up this image of a lovely church I took with the departed lens from Buena Vista Park in the Haight in San Francisco. The church was a mile or more distant from the hilltop park. Big Guy did a respectable job. I'll miss him.
Farewell dear friend.
Rest in peace (pieces?).
