Canon 28 - 135mm


Ok, just received my new lens from the US in less than a week! Go US Mail!!!

I am very excited about trying it out. Although it weighs a lot more than my stock lens I have been using, I presume - I am going to get big biceps....

Sorry, wasn't really anything to post here, I am just excited and wanted to share!!!

  Okay Natalie. Just curious as to what part of the globe you live on.
Read your other thread about Freddo Frogs? I'm afraid to ask.
Congratulations on your new lens.

  What's considered 'freezing' in Australia? In your other post you said it was 'winter here' and you were freezing! In the land down under?

  Well, it was 2 degrees this morning, I know you probably get colder, but that is cold for here (but normal for a winter morning). The other morning it was -4 degrees (0 being freezing point).

I just hate winter, being cold hurts! and you can't concentrate on anything other than how cold you are. I am definiately looking forward to Spring!

  Wow! Learn something new everyday. I never thought it got cold in Australia.
Everything you see about it in pictures and movies depict it as a place where it's always summer. I don't beleive I've ever seen pictures of a cold Australia or one blanketed in snow!
I live in New York, USA. This past winter wasn't too bad. The winter before we saw plenty of singel digit and below zero temps.
Like you, I hate the cold. Even more so, because I'm originally from Maryland, which is about 400 or 500 miles further south.

  Hi Bob,
I'm from Down Under too - Natalie is talking about Celsius temperatures, of course, not fahrenheit! So 0 degrees C = 32 degrees F, 10C=50F, etc. So it doesn't really get too cold Down Under, compared to most of North America! But it's certainly chilly enough to want to head to far north Queensland, where it's still around 80F! (A bit like North Americans heading to Hawaii or Florida in February..)

PS: Here's a photo I took last year of a "cold Australia" (if this upload works - otherwise it's in my gallery - it's called "Frosty")

  I am from Maine and one winter morning when we boarded the plane to fly to Florida for a week it was 38 below here in Maine.

  Thanks Robyn:

I had wondered if that was Celsius or Faranheit? But still, if you're used to 80+ temps, 32 might as well be zero.

You have some awesome portrait work in your gallery, but I like the one of the coffee pot.

Reminds me of Mothers Day one year when our daughter decided to surprise us with breakfast in bed.

They did everything right with the coffee, but it was one of those with the stopper so you can remove the pot in mid brew without making a mess. Problem is, they failed to put the lid on the pot so the there was nothing to open the valve to allow the coffee to flow through and into the pot. Rather, it filled up the filter basket and flowed out all over the kitchen counter.

But like you said, "Thier hearts were in the right place".

If that's anything like having 'Good Intentions' that might not be a good thing. My Grandmother used to say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. LOL!
