Yesterday during lunch was probably the best opportunity, although I chose to finish my latest Flickr hack instead. And by the time I got home, it was getting cloudy and threatening to rain. And today, it’s been pretty rainy all day with some carry over into Saturday. Oh well.
But I do have my first assignment lined up for putting this new guy to the test. On Sunday, my wife and I have sky box tickets to the Chicago Wolves game with her family, and I’m getting my second chance to bring all my gear out to a hockey game for some fast action shots. And being in a sky box this time, I’ll have more than enough room to shoot comfortably without upsetting those next to me.
It’s actually going to be our third game of the freshly started hockey season, with the first two games at the United Center with the Blackhawks. I went cameraless to those game, however, since are seats were even out of the range of my 300mm telephoto. Still lovin’ the live hockey action here in Chicago, though.
So if all goes well, I’ll have some great hockey pics to share early next week and something to write about for my new Rebel. In the meantime, I still have stuff to post about my almost-as-new SD890 and our Door County photos from last month. I’ll post about those over the weekend.
