20160723 16-35mm f/2.8 “L” is ALIVE!

20160715 Ricardo casa-9371FB - Copy

As I get ready to shoot the night photography of this place, I was picking up my Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 “L” zoom lens, knowing it was the lens I wanted to use for this shoot.

But being the lens I broke in HALF a couple years ago and REPAIRED, it has issues of not connecting electronics wise and had for almost year has been waiting for me to be somewhere with the monies to ship it to Canon to repair again.

Yes. broke it in half on a night shoot. I let go of the tripod turned and then the crash. I turned back to see the beam of my headlamp showing the lens bouncing down the mountain side. I saw the camera at at my feet and “This going to hurt.”

Well I pulled it slightly apart yesterday, and was only able to clean some dust from a place that was important for electric connects. Closed it up.

Put it on the camera, hit the shutter and heard the whole cycle, It Worked!

I went outside and hit the shutter twice more, both shots worked proper, and the image on the LCD showed clean in focus.

I put the Lens away, if it only works for a 2 more shots, they will be at THIS Spiritual property.

The shot above is one of the ones I am planning to have fun with… Ricardo even asked if I had my “colored lights” he had seen in other shots…. {patience, patience, patience} I told him, “Yes! lots of gels left.” We will have fun! {above with my Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Macro lens. The other Favorite lens.

I guess the Spirits agree, this place deserves the Best I can do.

Lovingkindness energy to All,

Creative shooting.
