Revisiting old stomping grounds
This weekend afforded me the opportunity to go take some photographs in an area I frequented while at St. Mary's University - in fact, my Canon AE-1 made its debut at the Point Pleasant Park, and I promptly rewound that first roll of film, BACKWARDS.
That was in 1984.
Sadly, Hurricane Juan devastated much of this beautiful wooded mecca in the South End of Halifax a few years ago, although it still has a high photographic appeal due to the eeriness of what's left.
The 16-85mm VR shows that crisp bite a high-quality lens should, many people feel this optic is as good or better than the pro-oriented AF-S 17-55mm f/2.8. It has been a good investment, balances nicely on the D40.
The last file had some help with the SB-400 for fill lighting.
