It was amazing to see CL and BVS all finished (technically partial finished until it opens officially in a few days). CL was even better then I expected. The rides were great and Radiator Springs town looked exactly just like in the movie. I am burned out taking over 2000 pics from CL and BVS and it was worth it. I wished I was there on opening day, but it was better to go during the preview while it was not that crowded.

I think she is refering to the quality of the picture of you on the beach, rather than insinuating that you look bad.

WOW!! Great price on the 10-22, i looked into renting one on our last trip, but too pricey for me. we have only one local camera shop and they wanted
$50.00 a day plus $700.00 deposit, so $350.00 to rent for 7 days, thats half the price of purchasing it.
I'm really looking forward to your pics with the 10-22 and 60D combo.

So what other lenses are you taking?

I don't have a lot of lenses. From my XTI days I had the 18-55is, 55-250is, and 50mm prime. When I got the 60d for Christmas my family bought the kit lens with it 18-135is. At first I just wanted the body and to get my own lens but I am glad we kept the first kit lens for the old camera in case my kids ever want to shoot. I've always wanted to shoot the 35mm 1.4 L lens or any "L" series lens for that matter. Have you ever shot with an L?

Here are a few from today out by the pool. I had the rare midweek day off.

That's a nice lens. Were the pictures from the pool taken using that lens?


Congrats on single digits!

Mike, looking at the exif data, i see the pool pics were taken with the 10-22,
that looks to be a really sharp lense.

We seem to have basically the same gear, 18-55, 18-135, 55-250 and the 50 1.8. my first DSLR body was the rebel XT.

Have i ever used L glass? No, not yet, maybe someday.......
