Had the best time on my 10 day UK Trip – London, Oxford, Bath, Bristol and Brighton – with great company and great memories 🙂
These pictures were taken with my Nikon D5100 and 18-55mm lens.
So this is the Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM C lens. What a long name. This is the “new” version – it has the C on the side.
I decided to buy this because I wanted a kit lens upgrade, and this has a larger aperture and macro mode, two things which I really like! The kit lens is always giving me “the subject is too dark” complaints.
This lens gets really amazing shots, colour is amazing, bokeh is amazing, macro is… magical. I can literally have the subject touching the lens and it will still focus. But… just one complaint from me – its way too heavy! The kit lens is 195g, and this is 535g. Almost 3 times the weight! And I think that’s what makes it unusable for me.. I will never look forward to bringing this lens around.
After like 4 years with my Nikon 5100, I finally upgraded my lens! It was actually a gift. But the pictures are amazing! The focus and the bokeh and the colours are so much better than the kit lens. I’m excited to take a lot more pictures this year!
For Labour Day weekend we decided to head to Tobermory for a road trip. It was really fun since we decided super last minute and ended up having to yolo a lot of the trip. We went on a sunset cruise and it was reaaally pretty! Sunsets are one of my favourite things. They are so simple yet so pure.
Pictures below are from iPhone 6s, since I didn’t bring my camera this time.
Visited the aquarium this weekend. Took lots of pictures, but it was kind of hard because it was too dark and also the water distorts the picture a little.
The Aurelia Aurita jelly fish is my favourite!
