But I wanted to point you all to two new photo sets on my web gallery.
Behind this link are photos of the Thai Songkran festival at the Berkeley temple. Funny, the name of the festival is Wan Songkran, and it turns into a war of water, which would transliterate as songkram nam.
It was still a nice sunny day when I left at about 4, and there was a pickup basketball game going on at the park across the street where I'd left the car. So I took these photos. The new lens works way way better in sunlight than it does indoors. It works better in sunlight than the previous lens did. Indoors not so much.
