lunch break

yesterday was the crazy snowpocolypse of a day (still going on today…) so workin’ from home also meant that i got to play around with alex’s new canon 5d mk 2…. the latest big deal of a camera from canon.

this was a shot out of my living room window w/ the 16-35L lens. of course, being the puja that i am, i had to mess w/ the colours a lil’ bit…. but the combo of camera and lens really brought out a pretty kick ass sharpness and contrast and all the things it was supposed to do for being a $4000 setup, i guess. (i’m sure no one else notices or even cares).

if you click on the image, you can see a larger image.
