    Here are a few shots I took in Lima, Peru using my NEX-3N and the Minolta Maxxum AF 100-200mm mini beercan lens. This was a small parade that came by the main plaza after we watched the changing of the guard ceremony on Sunday, September 8th. It was very crowded and the only way I could have gotten any pictures that had distinct subjects was to use the long lens and isolate specific people. Oh, and the last picture is just a guard in front of the presidential palace.

    You got some good ones there, Ed. I especially like the the one with the father carrying his son.

    Nice work Ed!!! "Father carrying his son" for me too even though I would have totally cropped the (blurred) woman in the foreground out of the photo to emphasize the focus point of the given photo ;)

    I agree. That would make it an even better photo.
