Summer Outing

Discussion in 'People' started by Aqualung, Jul 23, 2008.

  1. Last week my department got us together for a summer outing. We went to a small place nearby that had mini golf, go karts, batting cages, driving range, and open fields.

    We first had a 'team builder' work w/ us, and then had a volleyball game. Due to the 95° heat and 95% humidity, we only lasted one game.

    Some did go karts, while others golfed....we cut the afternoon short so we could hit the restaurant and replenish fluids :biggrin:.

    Mostly the 70-200, and the 17-55 (first 2, last 2) w/ SB-800 flash on Joe Demb bracket, w/ diffuser...C&C welcome, EXIF intact.

    1. Took the ferry over from CT to Long Island...

  2. Looks like a fun time. Nice pics. You should have been doing more drinking and less shooting!! :biggrin:
  3. Thanks Keith, LOL, I put the camera down after the cheers!
  4. Did I say more drinking and less shooting?? I meant to say more shooting, less drinking. It's easy to tell you shot more than you drank, as all your photos are in focus!! :biggrin:

    Very nice shots!! Super sharp!!
  8. LOL! My wife and I are going to a wine festival this Saturday, and when the newspaper found out, they gave me an assignment to cover it while I was there. They are getting one hour of shooting time, and the rest will be drinking time! :cool:
