Murphy-Cam goes to Lookout Farms: As new residents of Lookout Farms we are transitioning from downtown living back to the burbs.

James Bradley - Abolitionist

Always excited to go outside, but rarely happy to have his photo taken. This is a shot of Murphy in the morning giving me the business for shoving a camera in his face. Of course, I couldn’t help myself. I was testing out a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM, rented for a portrait project which I will cover in a later post. Murphy is not one to sit idle, so there are few shots of him, unless lighting is great. Being able to stop down to f2.8...
