My Dad used to tell me about how great the Sutro Baths were at Ocean Beach in San Francisco. Built in the late 1800′s, the Sutro Baths were a huge complex of pools, situated right on the waters of the Pacific Ocean underneath the famous Cliffhouse in San Francisco.  The Baths were closed in the 1960′s, and all that are left are these ruins.

Just a little more about the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8. Before I bought it I debated back and forth as to whether I should instead buy the Tokina 12-24 f/4, thinking I might miss the 16-24mm range. I think it’s safe to say now that I don’t miss that range one bit in a ultra wide, and will happily make the extra lens changes.

    • Hey what’s up Tori! Loooooved the D90. Even though I sold it for the D300s, it’s still a fantastic camera!

  2. I’m working…well, more like interning with a sister as her assistant. She is a wedding and portrait photographer. That is going real well. I’m really learning a lot.

    Still trying to develop my “style” (as well as the technical aspect) and give my photoblog some real direction.

    Good to know in regards to the D90.

    Hopefully I’ll be able to make the leap into the world of DSLR’s soon!

    • That’s cool! Observe her closely and ask questions like crazy. I learned the basics by watching my dad back in the film days. You have a blog too? What’s the link?

  4. Oh my name is click-able. It will take you to the blog. I tried posting the URL earlier and I think it just sent it to the spam folder.
