Loving the new lens…

…and Sleeklens actions. Okay, this is my favorite, for which I didn’t use any actions. I just cropped this. I’m so happy I can now get all the painted houses in one shot! Hm…it definitely looks better on a wide screen, LOL.

A Santa Cruz afternoon

My sister, a very good photographer who doesn’t set her camera on auto like me, but who has stopped taking photos because she’s not a blogger (my theory!), proved to be an excellent guide. I visited her and she took me out to shoot. What a great day.

Funny story – brought my new tripod and monopod. Really didn’t need them!

Looking back toward Santa Cruz, up the inlet.

I just loved all the photography happening here. I was trying not to get faces but the seated pair were preparing to play music.
