Calgary Uptown Eastside

I shot this photo of Eastside Calgary last night. The look out where I took this picture is just a few blocks away from my house, so I figured rather than watch Seinfeld or Frasier for the millionth time, I’d go out and have some fun. Right after I had set up my camera and tripod the tallest building in the middle’s alarm started going off, something I had never seen before. There was a bunch of flashing lights going up and down the building inside. I thought you might be able to tell from the picture, but it looks rather normal to me. In any case, I still like the picture and it was cool to see.

Family Time

This nice little family is taking a look back at my last post haha. They were actually pretty nice, I was across the street shooting and they were admiring the view. At one point they turned around to me and asked me if they were “in my shot”, and offered to move if they were. Little did they know, they were the shot! ;).

Let me start off by saying this is not a full in-depth review of the Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5 -6.3 APO DG OS HSM zoom, but rather a quick look.

The other night I was out shooting some skyline shots from a good distance from downtown and I thought this might be a good opportunity to show the insane zoom range of this lens. All though these conditions were not great for image quality review, I can tell you from previous use of this lens that things get a little on the soft side at 500mm. However, when your able to go from 50 to 500 without switching lenses you gotta let somethings slide. The OS (optical stabilizer) on this lens is great! You can actually use it hand-held throughout the range. I would suggest using a mono pod with this lens though, as your arms will get a radical work out lifting this heavy beast. In short, I like this lens. The image quality is great on the shorter side and get’s a little soft near the end, but I can live with that.

I’ll do a full review of this lens sometime in the future.

Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Sprinkler Fun

Yesterday my son had a little fun playing in the sprinkler that was set up behind our house in the park. Here are a few fun shots of him playing 🙂
