Pennybacker Bridge Wide Angle Test

Flowers, Graffiti and Open Doors

This is my first shot with the new lens. HDR, just for grins!

New Toy - Sigma 10-20mm HSM Wide Angle

I'm expanding my lens collection! Starting off with a wide angle zoom, I picked out the Sigma 10-20mm HSM for my Nikon D40. I got it primarily for landscape shots, but also for tight areas like market places etc. It's a heck of a hefty lens, doubling the weight of my D40 setup, easily! It has a good, solid construction and the zoom and manual focus rings are tight~ish but not too bad. I like it!!!!

Storm Clouds and Sun Beams

I took this while a storm cloud passed by tonight. Taken with my iPhone, actually, which did a decent job at capturing it!

Nose to Nose

I love trains. I am a train geek. I think they are impressive feats of human ingenuity and they have always captured my imagination. Thus, trains will always be featured prominently on my photo blog. :-)

I took this shot while driving through Fort Worth, Texas. I saw a train yard near the highway and pulled over to have a look around. This image, to me, captures the grimy, steel face that freight trains portray today.

Jerusalem Alleyway

To me, this shot is indicative of the foyers and alleyways you can encounter in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City, Jerusalem.
