Craigslist is crack. Cracklist more like it. While waiting for my Sigma 50mm f2.8 Macro lens to arrive from Amazon, I found a good deal on a used Sigma 70-300mm Macro.
After some emailing, calling, driving, getting lost, more driving, exchanging of cash, mounting (yes i’m still talking about purchasing camera equipment here), I got myself a new lens. It’s a lot longer than my kit lens, measures about 11 inches when fully extended. I haven’t gotten a chance to do any outdoor shots yet, but I fully intend on going paparazzi on some backyard squirrels tomorrow.
Below are some shots I did around the house and some were taken in the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexanderia, VA.
