Stopping In Wisconsin To Get Some Cheese
Last week on my way to Milwaukee to photograph the Xavier basketball team I stopped to make a couple of pictures on the side of the road. It is good to get out and stretch your legs from time to time while traveling. I usually have to get to where I am going so I don’t have time to do this. I budgeted extra time on this trip though as I would have to drive through Chicago. I really wanted to go and photograph a lighthouse in Milwaukee like my friend Trevor Mahlmann, but I realized that I wouldn’t have the time to do it. These roadside cheese signs are pretty cool too. Something you don’t see much outside of Wisconsin.
Using The 24-70mm Lens
I can’t remember the last time that I made a photo outside of a sporting event with my 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. I usually take my 24-105mm lens out when I am going to make photos like this. I don’t need the extra stop of light usually, and I get a little more lens that way. Here I had the 24-70mm mounted on my camera for the basketball game so I just went with it. This is still a great lens that I just don’t use as much as I should.
The Week In Photos
I have been so caught up in showing photos from the past this week that I have not really talked about my Week In Photos post from last week. You can find that here. It has a little basketball in it along with the last bit of Christmas for the year. I felt that I had a really good week to close the year out on. Take a look and let me know what you think.
