Southern Exposure

Magnolia Plantation
Charleston, SC

Nikon D700
Sigma 30mm f/1.4

A triptych from a wedding I shot earlier this year in South Carolina.

Though I don't necessarily hate the vignetting, I wish Sigma (or Nikon or whoever) would produce a similar lens to the 30mm f/1.4 that covers a full 35mm frame. I otherwise absolutely adore the image qualities of that lens!

Our 1st Colorado Rockies game

Our real estate agent, Gail Wheeler held her yearly client appreciation party at last night's Colorado Rockies (v. Arizona D-Backs, 10-6) baseball game. We had a great time seated at 5290' (just above the purple row) cheering on the team and meeting new friends. Some snaps from the evening and a slideshow at the end.

Long story short: We're now living in Denver, CO and some dear, old friends and their adorable toddler happened to be in town just as we took possession of our new home. We had a fantastic time with them, showing them nearby Denver City Park and taking them to WaterCourse Foods for breakfast (Camdan, above and below).
