We headed to the beach yesterday morning, intent on showing our New Zealander friends our aquatic getaway. I did a bit of deliberating over which lens to take. I never take multiple lenses to the beach because I don’t want to be switching them out and risk getting sand inside my camera. I was reaching for my 85 mm, but at the last-minute decided to grab my new 15 mm 2.8 Fisheye.
I am so glad I did. There is something about the fisheye lens that adds and extra *pop* and makes the photos look almost 3D.
Enoch, swimming to the dock after his jump off the pier.
This was Ben’s very first jump off the pier. He did a flip. In his jeans. Into freezing cold water. Then kept saying, “I’m keen to jump some more”.
After watching his siblings make a few jumps, Apollo said, “I jump off the dock now, Mama?” I said no. After all, the water was awfully cold. So Enoch let him dangle his feet in a bit.
Today we’ll have a bit of a quiet day at home, hitting the books. My parents are taking Ben and Adalia down to go hot air ballooning. The rest of us will study at home, until I pick the little kids at school early and drive them out to play practice. Then, tonight is their first performance. I can’t wait!
