When I went out yesterday afternoon, it was with the intent to spend some "quality time" with my 70-300mm lens. It's always in my bag, but I rarely use it. I did pull it out to take that eagle shot on Sunday, but I really wasn't happy with its (my?) performance, so I wanted to take it out and put it through its paces.
I ended up at a local park with the intent of just farting around, you know, taking some throw-away shots. Well, you know how it is, once you put a camera in your hands it's all business, so I put my long lens on the camera, took off my vest (it was too warm for it) and set about making photographs.
I got the shots I got, and was pleased with the effort; I thought I might even have a few keepers in the bunch. I reached for my lens cap, but it wasn't there! "Oh", I thought, "I left it in my vest pocket...in the car...with my keys!" Oh crap! March to the transit center, hop on a bus, get the wife's keys, hop on another bus and collect the car. Oh lord! My father was right! It IS a good thing my head's attached!
