Week 37: cycling, and testing a new lens

Filed under: — Administrator @ 05:25

A short blog this week. The main event was the acquisition of a new lens for my Fuji X cameras, a 17-70mm f2.8 Tamron zoom, to see if it could serve as the only lens to take on trips.

Then on to my testing of the new lens. I did it the usual way, by going to the centre and taking some pictures, starting with the fountain on Plaza de Correos:

I then went for a beer at my favourite bar, Malatesta, which also provided me with opportunities for testing the lens at full aperture:

At the weekend, I was out cycling as usual, stopping in the village of Verdegás for a short break. One thing I like about the village are the cats that hang around the church square. On this occasion, this cat was sleeping on one of the benches:

Then the kitty moved under the bench in search of shade:
