    I decided to wander around Boston yesterday for a few hours in the rain. I love this city, rain or shine. Let me know what you think.

    I spent some time at the aquarium. I learned I have no idea how to shoot fish in tanks...

    I love how the children are playing in the fountain, in their rain coats.

    I have to think about this one.
    Photo 1, was taken with the D50 and 50mm f/1.8.
    Photos 2, 3, and 4 were taken with the D2Xs and 50mm f/1.8
    The last two fisheye shots were taken with the D50 and the 10.5mm f/2.8

    The D50 does better at high ISO so I switched when it got later in the evening, and the D2Xs does better in the rain.
