Hannah @ 70-200mm f2.8

The Sigma 70-20mm f2.8 has been getting neglected, so it was time to take it out for a spin over the weekend. The amazing bokeh that Matt’s 1.8mm lenses on his full-frame D800 was still clear in my memory. A crop-sensor body like the D7000 is disadvantaged in the depth of field immediately achievable, so the compensating factor here is a lens with longer focal length. The pictures here were taken at home, and at a short visit to the Lorong Halus wetland (somewhat underwhelming). All at between 70-120mm, and excepting the pond shot, at f2.8.


Just woke up from her afternoon nap, and still feeling quite lethargic.


Funny story. Hannah had just learned how to sing the National Anthem.
Me: “Gaah. She’s growing up so fast. We don’t have much time before she brings home her first boyfriend!”
Ling snorted in derision: “What makes you think she’ll bring him home to see us?”
Me: “AGGGGHHH!!!!!”


North-Eastern Riverine Loop on a hot and humid Sunday late afternoon.


A pond at the Wetlands. Didn’t quite have the right lens for macro shots though.


We’re lucky Hannah didn’t insist on getting carried. That 2 hour hike carrying her up to the waterfall at Telunas still lingers in our minds.=)

    Nothing like background isolation than with a long lens!

    I see Hannah is still sporting those pink sunglasses. : )

    Ya, she’s still fond of putting those glasses on – even at home :)
