On our tour of the Parliamentary buildings in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, we were glad to have our wide angle zoom lens on our new D700, full frame (FX) camera to take full advantage of the wide perspective. When taking photos of architecture, I found the wide focal length to come in very handy in tight spaces. I was also able to get the whole building in one shot and with the distortion due to the ultra wide angle, I felt the creativity flow. Some may not prefer to have distorted looking buildings, but I rather like the look. I’ll post one of the outside next week. Until then, we’re off on the road again to Quebec!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thank you so much for dropping by! Although I have read all of your comments, I’m sorry I haven’t had much time to catch up on them and on your WYP entries. Now I know what friends meant when they said not to travel with an 18-month old!
