Wide and random

The last two weeks have been a blur. There has been work (boo hiss!) and photo shoots (woot!) and this.   I have let my 365 photo project lag along with my various blogs. I have been sick. (Hack, hack!)

I am exhausted.

Which means I am totally ready for our upcoming vacation to the U.K. and for using my rented wide-angle on the English countryside and streets of London.

This is me playing around the house with the Tokina 11-17mm.

I adore it. I can totally tell I will be a wide-angle-obsessed photographer. I love the distortion, the inclusiveness, the freedom in small spaces. I think it's entirely likely that I will not take it off my camera at all in England. I just feel that photos with a wide-angle lens have a certain majesty. Maybe subjective, but that's just me.

Oh and wish us luck on a 10 hour flight each way with Ms. Daisy. Actually, pray for us... we're gonna need it!

Yep. I can't imagine photographing NYC without one.

You will purchase one, no doubt. Now that I have one, I'm shocked (shocked!) that I ever lived without one. Great photos. I also love that with a wide angle you have to get up close and personal. It's scary and intimate and so rewarding. Well done! Can't wait to see the pictures of England.
