Close Quarter Photography With The 70-300mm.

The Nikkor 70-300mm VR G is certainly a great lens, but not one that you necessarily want to use when you are taking photos in old Quebec.  Don’t get me wrong, it has it’s place with certain shots; but on the most part, you would be better off with a mid-range zoom.

However, it’s the only lens i have for my D2x, so i made do with what i had – i did have my X10 with me, but i wanted to see what i could come up with by using the D2x.

In the end, it worked out.  Though, obviously, if i wanted wider shots, i would have had to of used the X10.

Photos taken with the Nikon D2x (the one of the rabbit and the one above that, were taken with the X10) and the Nikkor 70-300mm VR G.

Inside Sainte Anne de Beaupre Basilica

Photos taken with the Fuji X10 using ETTR (Exposure To The Right) in order to not blow the highlights; therefore, being able to see the colors and patterns of the stained glass.

Once again, the little X10 amazes me with what it can produce, with such a small sensor.

I was down in Montpelier, Vermont this past weekend and i spotted this:


Now, some of you are probably saying, “Big deal, it’s a sign!”.  Well, it’s not just any sign.

Gulf gas stations have not been in Canada since around 1985, that’s over thirty years!  However, in the last couple of years, they have been slowly coming back into Canada, but i don’t know how prevalent they have become.

Honestly, i don’t really remember seeing Gulf gas stations when i was kid, but as i started to follow automobile racing, i certainly became aware of Gulf.

For me, it was really fun to see this Gulf sign down in Montpelier.  It really is a throw back and brings you back to a very different time in this world.
