1056 – Power To The Meek

Not my best day yesterday. On the other hand, it was a wonderful late summer day and I left work early to go swimming, thus I should not complain 🙂

Both of these images are from yesterday morning and both were taken with the Sigma 150/2.8 Macro. These are the last images with this lens for at least two weeks. At the moment I am on the train to Carinthia, on Sunday I’ll be on a week-long trip to Kraków, Poland, and then I’ll spend another week in Carinthia.

I have decided to leave the 150 in Vienna. It is too heavy and as a walk-around lens only useful when you have the chance to return to a place. My lenses for the next two week are the three zooms Tokina 11-16/2.8, Nikon 18-200 VR, Nikon 70-300 VR, and the three primes Sigma 28/1.8, Nikon 50/1.8 and Nikon 10.5/2.8 fisheye.

The 28 will be my “normal” lens, the fish may be useful when ultra-wide is not wide enough, and the 50/1.8 is in my Carinthian bag at all times since I bought the superior but heavier and bigger Sigma 50/1.4. Additionally I will have my tripod in the car and the Lee graduated neutral density filters in the bag. I hope the weather plays nice 🙂

The Song of the Day is “Power To The Meek” from the 1999 Eurythmics album “Peace”. See a video on YouTube.
