Keep on Clicking is this year's Tamron road show and their tech team is all over the U.S. In fact, between now and June 10 they're in Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids, MI followed by Golden Valley, MN and Melrose, MA. Just click on the thumbnail to the right to stay on top of the schedule. These are live programs giving you a chance to get some terrific help on raising the bar on your images and at the same time taking Tamron glass out for a test drive.
We recently planted a red mandeville around our mailbox. The fun of a plant like this is being able to see all the stages of the flower on one plant. Each of these three stages are a couple of weeks apart, but at any given time the complete life-cycle of the mandeville flower is visible.
These were all handheld. With the wind blowing like it is this morning the larger flowers were much harder to photograph, but I wanted to grab a few shots to show you the quality of this lens together with the versatility that's become legendary with Panasonic's LUMIX cameras. Remember too, these are all screen shots and they're still sharp.
