I bought a zoom to capture my budding baseball star. Joey loves baseball this year. He has turned this corner with it. He gets the game. I mean, he really gets it now. When he gets that ball, his eyes dart to all the right bases, and he quickly throws it. He does a little happy dance when he is fast enough to get an out. And, I desperately want to capture it all. So, I obsessed over buying a zoom. I got the 70-200mm 4L, non-IS, in case you were curious. No action pics yet, later on that. I will say that I need serious practice cause I am not thrilled with my 200mm 100% crops. Anyhow...I just had to share some bokeh at 200mm. It is really amazing. I never shot with a 200mm lens. This pic is on my porch. The background is a nasty road, guard rail, buildings, and cars. But you can't really tell at 200mm, can ya?
And this is in the backyard, grape vines behind Paul.
Now, I must stop playing with my new lens and go pack for our vacation!
