A Nice Afternoon In The Park

I don’t think that we could have asked for better weather for today.  We have blue skies, a temperature in the double digits and a slight breeze.  Perfect conditions for going to the park.

Seeing as there was plenty of sunlight, i decided to bring along my Olympus TG3 in order to take some test shots.  I also brought along the fisheye converter.

The top photo is shot with the cameras lens at it’s widest, which is 25mm (35mm equivalent).

Below, the fisheye converter was used and gives a focal length of 18.5mm (35mm equivalent).

As you can see, there is a significant difference in the FOV between the two.

The TG3 is a neat little camera, but it is by no means for pixel peepers.  I will have more of my impressions on the camera in later posts, with more photos.

Who dares wins.

Windy Sunday Afternoon

Despite the fact that spring started a few weeks ago, winter still seems to have a cold, icy grip on the weather.

With the wind today, i believe it was close to -15 Celsius and that wind was fierce, biting at your face as you walked along outside.

As we came back from the flea market this afternoon, we were driving down the 13 and we saw an Air Transat A330 just clearing the highway, so he was probably a few hundred feet from touching down.  All of a sudden, you saw him squat a bit, then he pitched the nose up and starting to go up again, aborting his landing.  That is how bad the wind was today.

Because of that wind, a few flights came in over our house to land on 10-28.

I can only imagine that it was somewhat of a bumpy ride for quite a few people coming into Montreal today.

Who dares wins.
