Hello and Goodbye Columbus
Posted By: Sailor, 04-24-2007, 05:12 PM

Spent a beautiful weekend in Columbus, OH helping my daughter, a grad student at Ohio State, move to a new appartment. Here are some snapshots I managed to grab when I wasn't being a beast of burden.

A shot of the Buckeyes' massive football stadium with DA 21: f/11 @ 1/500s and ISO 200.

An image of a sleeply little lake (Hoover Damn Reservoir) outside of Columbus where my wife and I used to sail a Sunfish when we lived in the area for a few years in the late '70's. DA 40: f/16 @ 1/180s and ISO 200.

Finally, a picture of the "boat landing" at the small lake that's part of the appartment complex where my daughter now lives. DA 70: f/11 @ 1/250 and ISO 200.

For this trip, I left my K10D at home and brought my DS2 to avoid the weight and battery impedimentia of the K10D. I haven't used the DS2 much since I got the K10D in late November, and it was a real pleasure to shoot with this svelt little camera again. Makes me wish - once again - that Pentax would offer an updated version of a *ist D with shake reduction.

G'day Sailor,
So you get those jobs too. lol
Thanks for the pictorial tour, it looks a very nice place to live & learn.
There's not a lot wrong with that series of cameras as these shots prove.
