Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge: The School Bus

School Bus-

Good morning from a freezing Hastings morning.  New Zealand got it’s first snowfall of the winter over the weekend.  Good news for the ski fields, bad news for us winterphobes.  Yesterday it was cold at the market, but I was warm wandering around taking photos to upload onto our Facebook page – I am the social media queen.

Anyway each time I drive down to Otane, I see this great sign.  I have always made a note to myself to take a photo of it.  So yesterday I took my time driving down.  In other words I stopped every few miles to take photos.  (That is why I have to take a bus to Wellington – it would take me a week to get there, lol.).  The light was great but I had my Tamron 18 – 270 lens on.  So I was disappointed with the quality of the photos.  It won’t focus with the maximum zoom length.  Even though the camera was rested on the car.  It is not camera shake, just poor focusing.  I can’t use manual focus as I have trouble seeing it.  So I will just have to change lens and do it all over again next Sunday.

Anyway.. A bit thanks to Cee for highlighting my family of bags last week – check out the post here.

  1. It is so frustrating when lenses don’t do what they should. I have FINALLY gotten a wide to long lens for my Olympus that actually focuses through its whole range … but it’s the third lens. The first was really bad, the second better, but not good enough … and finally, this one is pretty good — but ONLY in bright light. Useless in lower light. Funny sign 🙂
