    A little the before the holidays, I had a severe case of cabin fever and needed a little trip to clear the air. Together with a couple of friends, we headed to Bisbee (,_Arizona) a funky old mining town near the Mexican border. I had a great day --explored, chatted with people, ate good food, and laughed --just what the doctor ordered. :frog: I used the Sigma 30 or the SEL50 for most of the day.

    Wr got the update on the clean-up of the mine from this gentleman. Taken with SEL50

    His buddy drew of sketch me while we were swapping stories. Also taken with the SEL50

    After lunch we poked around greater Bisbee and popped in to a museum that had just recently re-opened. The hostess insisted we go upstairs to look at the waffle irons. I didn't think it was all that :rolleyes:...but thought that these ladies boots were more interesting.

    This cherry styleside Ford F-100 really caught my eye. This is another shot taken with the SEL50

    Thanks to a friend who met us, I had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see some amazing/historical road race bicycles. I don't have any good pictures from this :grey:. I do hope to return and be able to shoot a couple of the bikes under more favorable conditions.

    During the golden hour we explored the Lowell district. Again, the vintage cars really spoke to me. All taken with the Sigma30 near WO.

    Fill 'er up.

    Thanks for the kind words, guys! I enjoyed the various architectural styles but didn't really manage to capture anything particularly well. Some interesting stuff here and there, off the beaten path (away from the obligatory art galleries). Next time I am going to have try to capture those courthouse doors and more structures.

    I like the atmosphere there, more open less...stodgy, than some parts of Arizona. Full of character.

    Screaming Banshee Pizza for the win!

    Been enjoying the SEL50 and its signature (it can exaggerate the shadows in high contrast situations) lately.

    Thanks Nick! I really like how this one turned out with only the streetlights as contemporary give-aways. This was probably the one I spent the most time on in PP. I enjoyed taking this shot because on an earlier road trip I had found an abandoned car in a dry creek bed of the same year and model (1946-1948 Chrysler Windsor) as this one!
