Something's Fishy

I love rediscovering a toy that I've had all along but often gets overlooked. My 10.5mm fisheye lens makes the trip with me to every wedding, yet I probably haven't touched it in years. Rich and I shot a wedding in Brooklyn last Sunday and I threw the lens on a camera just for fun. Rich used it more than I did that day, but it ended up back in the bag mounted to the camera. When I got to yesterday's wedding of my good friends Brian and Heather up in Sodus Point, I left the lens on the camera and began shooting. With clear blue skies and the help of my wife holding the wireless flash, the results with the fisheye were spectacular. 

 Not only did I rediscover a lens to use, I also had the pleasure of discovering Sodus Point. Located on the shore of Lake Ontario between Rochester and Syracuse, Sodus Point has the charm of Alexandria Bay on a smaller scale. With a quaint little business district chock full of waterfront restaurants and bars, and a sport fishing industry second to none, I will be certainly visiting again. At just under an hour from Canandaigua, it's a mini vacation we can take on a moments notice. It's a must see for lighthouse lovers.
