My daughter with one of the cars she decided was cool.
My wife and daughter took me out to a car show in Qualicum on Father's Day which was really nice. Neither of them are into cars, but they treated me to a non-rushed look at several hundred classic cars and a hot dog and ice cream as well! I took my Olympus E3 with me and the Leica 25mm f1.4 lens. As I always do I took a quick mental survey of the other DSLR cameras I saw, and there were lots of them. Most were Nikon it seemed, but I also saw a couple of different people carrying Sony DSLR cameras. Mine was the only Olympus. I did notice one Canon, but the guy with it had a 70-200 lens on it and was carrying it around like a bazooka. Honestly I don't know what I'm missing here, but in a dense (and I mean really dense) crowded car show how is it you choose to bring your big white 70-200 lens? Whatever.
I'm really loving Lightroom 3. I just finished editing my photos from last Saturdays wedding. That is record time for me and Lightroom really sped things up. The new watermarking feature is a huge time saver too as I export both a full sized and a small web-sized and watermarked version of each image. Being able to watermark all the photos from a wedding in one batch export is a massive time saver for me. Thank-you for that new feature!
I've always wanted an old Datsun. This was a 1972 240z which is perfect, but I like them in orange. Also like the 1980's Nissan 300z.
I was cruising the internet today and noticed that Lens Lenders has a new site and that they have lowered their prices! Not sure if it is just a temporary promotion, but if you want a Nikon, Canon or Olympus lens to rent check it out (Canada only).
