On days as hot and humid as today I wish it looked more like this out!

Various Things

So the Mio50 is a no go because the engine is only 50cc and it tops out at 30 mph which is just too slow. I'm now looking to get my motorcycle endorsement and a larger scooter!! I have always wanted a motorcycle so I am pretty excited to go look at scooters.

I haven't had any occasion to use my camera in the past few days so I am going to post some pics I didn't post before one of Mason and 3 from the Clawson car show. Enjoy!

New Transportation?

This is the Mio50. I think this would be great to take to work, especially since the new building has tight parking. What do you think?

Photos with new lens

Here they are. Enjoy!!!

Yay for new lenses!!!

Today the UPS man delivered my Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM Lens! That means that I now have the following lenses for my XTi:

1. Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II USM
2. Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
3. Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM

Here they are in all their glory (as taken with my Sony Cybershot W70).

Now I just need a longer zoom lens, and I have recently been eyeing other lenses, but I think I have my fix, for the moment anyway. I do need a flash though, and a tripod and a better bag (looking at the Tamrac Expedition 4), and...

I'll post pictures taken with my new lens later. As long as it doesn't rain Fred and I will be heading to A & W for the Thursday night cruise so I should be able to get some shots there. I need new shots of the Beetle anyway, now that Fred waxed it it is shiny. I have never seen it polished before in all my 5+ years with Fred!

Mason in the Sun

Late this afternoon Mason was laying in the sun in my office. I took that as a perfect opportunity to take some pictures with my new camera. I think they turned out great!


I believe this is my third or fourth blog attempt. The only time I kept up a blog sucessfully was when I lived in Japan. Hopefully this one will stick too.

I started this mostly to post pictures that I have taken (Flickr site here:, but also to post about my life.

With that said... here we go.
