This coming Sunday I am headed to Las Vegas for a week. Brandon and I are going to be attending a Windows and Microsoft Exchange conference held there. The conferences are the main reason for us going there, but my next reason (and the part I’m looking more forward to…) is to get some good shots. We are planning on hitting the city hard and then heading to the Grand Canyon as well.

If there are anymore of you geeky photobloggers out there like us who will be attending the conferences let us know so we can hook up! I’m super excited and ready to get to shooting. If you visit my photoblog you’ll probably notice that I haven’t been posting much lately and that’s because I haven’t been shooting much lately. I haven’t picked up my camera nor done much post-processing much at all for about a month or more. I just needed a break from it and have had a bunch of other things come up. One major project is we are re-modeling our bathroom, so that’s consumed every free minute for the past week and I’m barely half way there!


At this stage in the project I’ve removed the old yellow tile that was around the bathtub and along the wall by the toilet. I’ve removed the sheet rock that was behind the tile and started to hang the hardibacker where I’ll be putting tile back up. Tommorrow I’ll be removing the tub, replacing the fixtures and finishing putting up the hardibacker. I’ll try to remember to post some after pictures when we are done. I wish I had took some shots before we started, but oh well.
Anyways, since we are headed to Vegas and will be wondering around the landscape outside it and by the Grand Canyon I thought I really wanted to use a wider angle lens so I’ve got one of the 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC Sigma lens. I’ve played around with it a little and am liking it so far. Check back next week and see if I manage to get any good shots with it!
