Best laid plans of mice and men... looks like a lot of fun was had.

Here's my crop from yesterday.... thank you to Glenn for getting us all out there! It was fun :-)

All of mine were shot with my little Olympus OM-D; the longest reach I have on that is 100mm. That'll teach me for thinking 'we were only going for lunch'....

Not the greatest wide shot I've ever done, but managed to get all 18 of 'em in the shot

Seems like we here at MA2A pretty much have a great time when we're together, regardless of weather, and all the other factors that do or do not occur. I thought the highlight of my day was going to be having lunch with Jo & Glenn, turns out that that was just the beginning. I'd describe yesterday as "Don't you love it when no plan comes together?!"

Thanks again Glenn! Give Nadya a hug for me and tell her I'm sorry we didn't get to spend a little more time together. So nice to see your little ones, just the cutest.


This shot is what you get for being the only one of us having a tripod nicely done!

Thanks Jeff, thanks Brian. I guess 32 years of doing this professionally has taught me a couple of anticipatory skills. Although you'd think I'd learn not to change lenses in 30 knot Texas wind in the middle of a field with a bunch of Apaches swarming around. Time for a few hours of sensor cleaning.

I still think the 1D X sensor, for some reason, has a much greater tendency to become trashed when compared to any of my previous bodies. The worst of it accumulates in the upper left and right corners for some odd reason.

This Guy has it all going on at his home base, and makes it look effortless.

Jo,

Tiny lens or not, you nailed it


Thank you Shaggy!

This is why I have the Olympus in the first place... to always have a proper camera on hand when I don't carry the big guns

Hi Jo:
Not surprised based on who is operating it, but i'm impressed with that little Olympus. That would really make me question lugging my stuff around in a lot of situations. Very cool!

Good Morning Jan Arie (corrected for the time difference) That's exactly what we said when the first gaggle came into view!

We want you to know we had to brave copious sunshine, beautiful Texas skies and 80 degree temps in order to bring you this imagery. The climatic conditions were only surpassed by the quality of the company in attendance. Oh yeah, and the great burrito's. I need to not plan my days more often................
