The Morning Before Christmas Day...

Newer Older

took this shot early this morning in downtown Chicago as i drove into the city a bit earlier to pick up Delight from her workplace....i had a full hour before she got off work so i did a little bit of walking around the Chicago River area and got some decent shots in...i finally got to use my new Tamron 10-24mm UWA for the first time this morning which comes in really handy to fit all those soaring skyscrapers here in Chicago into the frame....i got this lens about 2 weeks ago but the weather has been so bad here that this morning was my first time to shoot outside in about 2 weeks...this frame has a little bit of a shake if you look at it closely as i had my tripod in the middle of the bridge along Columbus Drive and a little bit of vibration from the passing cars caused the shakes....2 hours after i took this shot, the snowfall we were supposed to get today began falling so it will be a beautiful white Christmas tonight in Chicagoland!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!!!

    I'm very impressed that your ultra wide angle lens seems to be able to keep buildings upright. Usually they're keystoning or leaning inward. Must be a combination of the new lens's capabilities and your own photographic skill.
