going wide… photos from the ranch

a few months ago i was in texas for business and was invited to a friend’s ranch for the weekend. given that i’ve never been to a ranch, i thought it would be pretty exciting and planned to bring my fresh-from getting a good cleaning canon camera. long story short, just before leaving austin and heading to the ranch, i had a serious accident with my camera. the body was fine, the lens, not so much. i had an important decision to make.. go to the ranch sans camera and figure things out when i returned home, or find a local pro-shop? i did the latter and walked out with 2 things:  1) assurance from the pro’s that my lens could be repaired for less than it cost to replace it, and 2) a new wide angle lens to make me feel better for the ranch weekend. it was on my wishlist anyway – what better excuse?

the lens:  a canon 17-40mm.  i still haven’t had my other lens fixed, so for the next few posts, you’ll be seeing more from this lens. my verdict? i love it. to fill my frame with a subject it forces me to get up close to the action. but now i can capture scenic landscapes better than ever. wider wider wider!

note… i’ll be emailing everyone soon about the release of my new book –  “Love Your Photos”, so if you haven’t already, sign up for my email list so you see all future interviews and announcements about the book.
