Tree Climber

My middle child is a fearless little acrobat. We recently enrolled her in gymnastics and it’s been fun to see her learning new things and getting braver each time she’s at the gym. Her gymnastics class is only once a week though so the rest of the time she keeps herself active on the climbing around our house provided by nature, such as the trees in our front yard.

I took this photo of her a few days ago while trying out the decades old Canon 20-35mm f2.8L lens. For the price that one can get this lens used, I wonder why anybody would pay 5-6 times more to get any of versions of the modern 16-35 f2.8 L lenses. But then again, I’m not a professional and I am a self-proclaimed lover of older lenses. Back to my daughter though. She was half-way up the tree, and, as always, when I asked her to look at me and she saw the camera in my hand, she gave me one of her hundreds of silly looks. I like that silly look though, and she was perfectly fine with me posting this photo of her for anybody to see.
