Summer is here!!   Flowers are blooming all around and I have been snapping some shots along the way.  Here are a couple of them...

I have developed quite a collection of them and it will give me something to look at over the long New England Winter!    I have also been looking into a couple different lens types and I think I have identified what is next for me.   I have decided I want a macro lens and also a super wide angle (10 or mm) for my DX camera.  I gave it some real thought and decided that for my use, the super wide would get more use.   Based on that, I moved it ahead of the macro and will concentrate my efforts in that direction.   There are 3 that stand out:

Sigma 10-20mm
Tamron 10-24mm
Tokina 11-16mm

Based on reviews, I will likely go with the Sigma or Tokina.   I am planning to buy used so final determination will likely be availability and deal.

On to Auto's!  One of the recent Challenges was "Automobile".   I went to cruise nights, took pictures of my Miata and other stuff.

I went with the "Petty" Blue Mustang!  I actually was able to finish 2nd in this Challenge.   I did get some tips and they made sense for how I could have made it a better photo.   Learning is what it is all about anyway!  

Happy Shooting...
