I wanted to play with my new zoom lens so here are some photos of my day. I am so not used to the extra weight of the lens - I felt like I was lifting weights after awhile.
I took most of these photos from a long distance to the subject and loved how the zoom worked. I need to remember to bring a tripod next time though as the camera shake was annoying. The statue of the Civil War looking soldier, I took that from 3 streets away. I could see right up its nose... not that I wanted a photo of that.
There were an abundance of birds and hawks out and I got quite a few but these were the best. Note, the bird sitting on Jesus's head and also on the really white statue's head. Also weird? A skywriter - which I haven't seen in a long time. It spelled out Crunch Fitness and a flag symbol over Forest Lawn... not really their prime market? Or maybe to get the visitors to think about their own mortality?
That last photo is a symbol I haven't seen yet on a grave marker so I wanted to get a close-up so I could look it up. And happy to see some Bees on the flowers. All in all a good trip!
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
