TRAVEL ALONG WITH ME
Travel is one of my passions, but another is photography. Since my trips are only occasional, I have decided to add more of my photographic experiences to this blog.
Since you are obviously here, please enjoy.

Lens creep! The bane of most if not all zoom lens. After going the "asparagus" rubber band route, I read about 'LENSBAND'.
Navigating the LENSBAND web site - http://lensband.com/ - is a snap, and after ordering, (and within days) receiving a Black LENSBAND for my Tamron 18-270mm telephoto lens, I slipped in on the lens as illustrated, and - WOW - instant cure. The band isn't soft and pliable like a regular elastic band, but the firmer tension and close to 1/2" width make it the ideal solution, and since I ordered the black band - on my black lens, it is just about invisible.

Where does the time go?
As I mentioned in my last post, I visited the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens Butterfly exhibit with a group from our Photo Club. A fun day beginning with the butterfly exhibit which allowed us to enter the enclosure before the official opening time so that we could move around without bumping into the daily hordes of visitors.
After a short while, we wondered around the gardens looking for that 'special' image. Tiring of the beautiful flowers, I was lucky to find a Gila woodpecker feeding on the flowers of the cactus.

March is gone and here we are finishing the first week of April. Where does the time go?
This week I travelled (with a group from my Photo club) to the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens Butterfly exhibit, but haven't had time to look at the results as yet. Another club project was to try and be a little creative using water, oil, colored backdrops and light. The experiment was very interesting and the results, although not to everyone's tastes, does expand on what can be done with a little imagination.
Have a safe weekend and enjoy my following offerings.
