One of the items on the Scavenger Hunt 101 list is “a beast of burden”. Maybe some folks would have difficulty with that one, but when we saw that all three of us said, “No sweat! We’ll just go to the Plowing Competition!” This is the third year in a row we’ve gone. The first year was the day after Schnookie gave me the Canon DSLR for my birthday, so we didn’t really know what we were doing and we had to share the camera. The second year, I took a polarizing filter I didn’t really know how to use and then tried to use a custom white-balance setting I really didn’t really know how to use. Needless to say, all my pictures sucked. So this year my goal was to not share a camera, not use a polarizer (even though the bright blue sky would have been perfect for it), and not take pictures quite as crappy as last year’s. I took the Lensbaby and the 15mm fisheye lens Schnookie gave me for my birthday this year (it’s like a super-wide angle 50mm — I’m in deep smit with the fisheye) and Schnookie took the 70-300mm lens. Here’ s sampling of the pictures we took.
