This blog used to be called Roscoe Blvd. I have expanded the area I want to cover to all of Palm Valley. Palm Valley is not strictly delineated and only semi-official. There are signs where you enter it, but it exists more in the mind than on a map. We aren't a subdivision. We don't have covenants nor a homeowner"s association. Roscoe Blvd. is the main thoroughfare with lots of little side streets. I hope to start recording more of it this summer.
Every photographer has a way of testing new lenses. Some use a newspaper, some use brick walls, some shoot a nearby building. I go down to Roscoe extension and set up on a tripod and shoot this marsh grass. Plenty of detail, straight lines, curves, slants, all very revealing and a real test of a lens. This was shot with my newest lens, an Olympus 45mm f/1.8, mounted on a Panasonic Lumix G2. It is really sharp.
