Give me some time. I've only had it since the middle of last week. And with
my change to photo editor in process, and my hours changing, I haven't had
a chance. But there are a couple pictures I shot on Thursday and Saturday
I'll put up soon. Look for them tomorrow.

Speaking of the Saturday picture. I have a picture taken at a football game
(yes, with a 19!) of a football player being congratulated for a major
touchdown. You can see a person's face through the opening in the arm of a
player facing away from the camera. There is no way, with parallax error,
that I could have made that picture so precisely with a rangefinder. This
is one picture that shows SLRs are better for ultra-wide lenses.
