On Sunday the weather finally cleared up with warm - 50's - temperatures along with a bright sun. Great time to be out and about with cameras.
Where to go? Had several locations in mind but since the previous week was one of a long slow health recovery, decided to stick close to My Midwest headquarters. With Liah sleeping, packed up and headed out.
Photographing a familiar place can be a challenge. Having seemingly seen it many times over a number of years, obtaining something fresh and different is often difficult.
While not certain that this part of the journey was successful, did return with a number of acceptable results.
An element of the wander was to check out a new piece of equipment. In a effort to reduce the total amount of photographic equipment, obtained a new (12 - 100mm) lens to replace two (12 - 40mm and a 40 - 100mm) lenses.
The above photographs were captured with the new lens. They certainly suggest that the replacement lens is a perfectly good one and the camera bag is now a touch lighter and easier to carry.
