May '09

I'm playing with a new toy this month, and I came about it in a serendipitous way. A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned on Facebook that I wanted to get a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens. A friend who rarely gets on Facebook happened to be on that day and saw my post. He let me know that he just happened to have the lens I was coveting and was thinking of selling it. Imagine that! We made a deal within an hour, and it was delivered within a week! I love it already and don't really know how to use it yet. Here's what I saw with it today.

The old house across the street from work has been condemned and is being dismantled, piece by piece. You can see that the porch deck has already been removed and the supports are hanging in mid-air.
