On Saturday evening my dad and I went down to Pugh Marina in hopes of catching a moonrise. But as we got to the lake, we saw a heavy haze on the horizon above Lake Michigan, and the hopes for a moonrise dimmed. However, I took advantage of the fleeting golden-hour light to walk into a normally gated area at the marina that used to be chock full of derelict boats. Evidently, the marina has been getting rid of them, because the gate was wide open (it actually has been for days–I just finally took the initiative to walk over to it) and only three remain. I’m 99% certain that if you dropped this boat into the lake it would just sink.
In my last post about the Lensbaby I was hesitant to recommend it. I will say that, after using the Lensbaby Composer some more, it does have a learning curve and I think the hardest thing to know is when to use which aperture with this lens. This is especially true as you have to manually insert and remove the aperture “blades” (washers), and since it’s a rental I don’t want to risk carrying them around and losing them! What I am slowly discovering is that I like this lens with a little more depth of field than it has wide open or even at “f/2.8.” The image above was captured at f/4, and I think I may try f/5.6 in my next experiment. Food for thought.
