Turned 62 this week, now into the 63rd rotation. Hopefully will begin to get some things right after having so many turns at the wheel. Oh well.
My brother ( http://www.pbase.com/dwnieman ) and I spent the last half of the week at the Canon EXPO 2010 in the Javits Center in NYC. In my opinion, Canon outdid themselves! Be on the lookout for the new 70-300 2.8 L IS lens soon to be released by Canon. I think it will be a must have lens. They were really tooting the horn of the new 60D and the 7D got lots of press, too. Video was the big thing at the show. The more I look at the 7D the more interest I develop, but I'm holding out for a next generation full frame 5D (or whatever they name it) before investing in a new body.
This shot was taken from the Brooklyn Bridge park on the Brooklyn side of the river. That was a great place to stand for the classic shots of the NYC skyline.
