2011, Day 049 - Consumed

I've returned to an old friend; I've held on to my Canon 1D Mark III for quite a while because of problems I experienced with the autofocus of its replacement. Yup, my 1D Mark IV was a dud but Canon's Pro Rep took care of me and replaced it with a new copy that has been flawless. Still, I was nervous but after over 12,000 pictures I'm satisfied with its reliability so I sold the 1D Mark III and replaced it with a 1Ds Mark II. Yes, it is a step back technologically and I will miss the larger screen, easier navigation and the lithium-ion batteries of the newer generation but it is a return to a full frame sensor. There is something about the feeling of the files from this camera, the way they process and the details they capture that I really enjoy. Somehow the technology feels less digital.

With a freshly charged battery and poor weather I didn't have many opportunities to reacquaint myself but I did take a few shots while running around.

This poor tree was fenced in but refused to be contained and is slowly devouring the chain-link.

And it has been a while since I've graced the blog with one of my boys and Johan looked so sweet cuddled up on the sofa.
