I wanted to get a single lens that could cover most of the bases when I was traveling. What I settled on was the Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4 "Contemporary" lens. So, out I went to see what I had either wisely spent my money on or what a big mistake I had made.
Going low and wide on Nihon Odori avenue.
Here comes the bus!
The streets are paved with gold.
Well now, what a pleasant surprise. The truth is that she was posing for another fella and I just sort of nonchalantly took a picture of her too.
Okay, maybe I took two pictures of her.
The Yokohama Bay Bridge as seen from Osanbashi pier.
An ocean going fishing boat getting ready to go back to sea.
Kasumi High School??? Must be a real sink or swim organization.
If one is going to go to sea do it in style.
I'm not the only photographer on the prowl.
It's fun to dream about going around the world on a luxury ocean liner.
Not everyone shares that dream.
This ship is so big they had to design it with extended bridge wings.
The lady in black.
People, places and things - this lens is checking all the boxes.
The back end of one damn big ship!
The lamp post makes a good sun dial.
Busted! I think I need to change the batteries on my cloak of invisibility.
This is a beautiful day for a walk-about.
Girl power on the move.
Yamashita-koen-odori is looking mighty good today.
Looking pretty in the Yamashita Koen flower garden.
This lens has macro photography capability too!
Flower gardens are always worth visiting.
Time for a run through China Town.
Up close and personal - not much this lens can't do.
This woman and the picture on the building have something in common.
Love the gold lanterns.
This place must look great at night with the lanterns illuminated.
I've got Rod Stewart singing "Some Guys have all the luck" playing in my head.
The music just got a little louder.
Doing that wide-and-low thing again.
Last shot of the day: A lovely lamp in a jewellery shop window.
Thanks for stopping by!
