Default .....working the 40-150 PRO and FT 9-18

...... I just don't remove the MC14 from the f/2.8 40-150; too good a combination.

The other lens I use with 100% confidence it will produce what I expect is the FT 9-18.

For these I mounted the gear onto the SLIK PRO 823CF tripod and went looking for different perspectives to AT&T stadium. All commercial and most amateur images of the 'house' are done from the street or parking lots. From the east side and the Richard Greene Linear Park we get to move about to show many different views of the stadium for unique looks. The park too is one of the best of our city parks for landscape and walking layout. Globe Life Park (MLB Texas Rangers) is across the street from the park, a block east of the AT&T stadium.... Can you say 'traffic' on game days when both stadiums are busy.....

That young Heron is cute!

The 9-18 four-thirds Zuiko is one nice lens, and that's a very good copy you've got.

That looks like new artwork. Don't recall seeing that, and it looks like they've upgraded the pathways with the benches and landscaping. Anything to help ease the pain of the fans leaving after the football games is a good thing, LOL...

Very nice pictures Bob, great job handling the highlights on the Great Egret.

The 9-18mm is also one of my favorites lenses.

Yes, you do enjoy a fine pair of lenses and your shots show you mastery of them. Question, the herons are by the ball park? Here in Toronto that park land would be a parking lot or a condo.

... see the blue creek in the .gif. the park runs along that creek. Parking shown is only for the baseball events. AT&T stadium has a similar parking lots layout. The two stadums are just a city block apart....... The city park runs along the east side of AT&T lot 4.

We got parking, the herons got creek.........
