Guess where I got to shoot?

This is just a quick photo I snapped with my iPhone for myself… a far cry from the images I got with the 40D, 1D Mark II and the arsenal of lenses that Wade and I used to attack the Basilica of St. Mary for a wedding on Saturday. But, not too bad for an iPhone, considering how dark it was when I took this. Technically I was only there as a VALC (Voice Activated Light Stand™) and pack mule, but given the location (and the fact that Wade trusts me and we work well together), I did get in some shooting as well. Besides, I let him use my 70-200 f/2.8L IS lens… oh, did I mention that I bought one? Yeah, it’s nice. Hand-held shots from the back of the aisle were never so sharp. “Make sure you get the kiss,” he said as he handed it back to me. No problem.
That 135mm f/2.0L that I was looking at… on hold for a while. Gotta pay for this one first… and a 5D Mark II second? We’ll see what gets announced this week/month… Speaking of which, I’m glad to report that CanonRumors.com has reached an agreement with Canon USA that will let them keep operating with the same domain!
