First, I must justify my purchase, because I'm a guilty shopper. I haven't bought a new camera lens since July of 2008. There. Justified.
Second, only photography geeks get excited about something so seemingly mundane as a new lens -- this post is for you. You know who you are. Rejoice with me.
I took my new Canon 28mm f/1.8 out for a quick test spin in the engineering lab when it arrived today. I felt like a kid at Christmas:
Walking in the lobby of our terrace level entrance (aka: the basement), you'll find this display of the 23rd Heresy, built in 1958. Why on earth is the angry fish from The Cat in the Hat enclosed with it, you might ask? You got me. If anyone has an idea, pass it on.
You can view the enclosed photo and caption about this particular Heresy here, as well as glimpse an alternate view of the strange display here. In the spirit of being random, note the photo in the case was taken the same month and year as Michael Jackson's birth. See? No relevance whatsoever. It must be Friday.
This is one of my favorite spots in the building. I'm not sure if it's the stark contrast of old vs. new speakers, funky spider lamp, psychedelic chairs, or fake fig tree. I'm guessing it's the combination of all four.
Well, at least two people here were in the holiday spirit!
Greeting Card Valentine's Day, everyone!
Nothing screams heartland to me quite like a town square courthouse (c.1879). It also happens to scream "Save the clock tower!", which I happily think of every time I drive by.
This is my photo representation of Noblesville, Indiana. Also known as "how to pass time while waiting at those annoying town square stop lights."
...because I get to beta test stuff like this -- the up-coming Gallery line of flat panel speakers from Klipsch, which are temporarily replacing my beloved RVX-42s. How do they sound? I'll just say that I really really really don't want to give them back. Curses!
(who ever says the word "curses" anymore? oh, well, I guess I do)
4th day off from school this week, and out of babysitting options for the a.m. I did think he looked cute all by himself in our café this morning, so here you go. Grandma came to the rescue at lunch time, thank goodness. I can only hear "mommy" so many times per day, and having him here was rapidly approaching that limit.
Thank you, Steven, for summing it up so eloquently.
I hope everyone weathers the storm ok. Klipsch offices in Indy are closed today, since we're covered in a sheet of ice, with much more on the way.
Stay safe everyone!!
