Last weekend was the city Irish Parade. It was a good opportunity to put my Canon 17-40mm f/4 L through its paces. I wanted to travel light, so I paired with my 500D which gave me an equivalent focal length range of 27-64mm. I could have done with a bit more reach, but I had some ideas for wide shots which ruled the 50mm out and I certainly didn’t want to carry the 70-200mm.
I’m quite pleased with the way they turned out. I had sore legs the next day however from all the running and squatting – obviously need to do more of this stuff!
