Remember: only one image each week!Happy Thursday to everyone! This is my last week of summer "vacation" until school starts on Monday. I've been working a lot lately (I'm not complaining, it is by choice) and haven't had much time for photography, but I have managed to get a few shots off and once school starts I'll be back in swing with the school newspaper. My good friend gave me a 1.4x II t/c as a gift recently for helping him out in his photography business and other things. I took it out in the yard yesterday to play with it and here's one of the shots. The camera was tripod mounted, but I still could have used a tad faster shutter to reduce motion blur. But for just stepping out the front door and snaping a shot, I'll take it.
