70-200, baby

i just ordered the canon 70-200mm f/4L. i cannot wait for it to arrive. it’s in pennslyvania right now. unfortunately, it is scheduled to arrive after i’ve left for monterey so it looks like i won’t be able to play with it until next week some time. oh well, that’s just too bad.

i also bought a circular polarizer and a step up ring for the 70-200mm so that it can use the 77mm polarizer. man, filters are expensive when they start getting that big.

i think that this will be the last lens purchase of mine for a while now. i don’t think that there will be anything else i need. i am very curious to see how it does compared to its bigger 2.8 IS cousin. i guess there will be a shoot out soon.

worst morning ever

i’ve had a really rough morning. sometime over the night there was a black out in the apartment. power was restored around 6AM this morning. i slept through it all just fine, but was woken up by a very bad dream. when i woke up i felt awful and i looked to see what time it was and i saw that flashing time of 12:36. uh oh. i thought that i had overslept so when i checked the other clock to see what time it really was, i didn’t believe it when it read 6:30AM. i checked another clock and sure enough it really was 6:30AM. i reset my alarm clock and went back to sleep.

i got woken up again at 8AM feeling even less rested than when i first woke up. the bad dream was still on my mind and i did not get a restful sleep. now i feel exhausted and i have a long day ahead of me…

i think i need a donut.
