Endlessly expanding technology

Some shots from over the weekend...

Finally got my new Sigma 30mm f/1.4 last Wednesday and was playing around with it some more over the weekend.  First thing is it is quite a bit heavier than the kit lens, and with the lens hood on, it looks quite menacing, even for a 30mm prime.  However, it is a great lens!  Very sharp, excellent low light performance.  On Saturday, we went to this crab feed at my wife’s old church in Lodi and was taking a few shots there (before my battery inadvertently died, oops).  Most of the shots were a little blurry, since I had drank a couple of glasses of wine, but some of friends were like, “wow, you don’t need the flash at all?!?”  Nope, but even at 1/30–1/60 sec shutter speed, I wasn’t doing too well handheld.  Here are a couple of shots from over the weekend though.  First two are from the crab feed of my brother-in-law and father-in-law, and the third is my wife lounging on the couch on Sunday.
