Photography | New York Water Taxi


Sometimes during my lunch break I would rather do anything but lunch. I strolled my way to the pier and brought along my new lens, a Sigma 28-300mm f 3.5-6.3. When I originally purchased this baby, all I could think was “great, a do it all lens so I can stop changing them in the body all the time”. Little did I know the huge surprise I received when it first arrived in the mail. It was huge, and heavy. . . Not exactly what I had in mind.
Either way, I was determined to make good use of this baby, so I added on the converter from my Canon to Sony (which ended up making it even longer) and told myself it was time to learn all it could do, or at least get used to it a bit.
There’s so much I don’t know about the city, just when I think I know what’s around me, I learn a new crook and cranny. Near the water, there were people just relaxing, staring out into the water, some waiting for a boat to dock, and even noticed a cop taking some selfies. The water taxi started getting closer, and I liked how bright it look amongst the cloudy sky that should have been a nice shade of blue.
Though this lens would never work for me as an every day lens (it’s inconvinient) it’s still a pretty nice piece of glass. Carrying it around with me, might have to be a bit planned, but I know it’ll be worth it.
I hope I don’t get lazy and learn to bring it around with me anyway. I loved how these images turned out.
Until next time!
