Last week, after years of procrastination, I finally bought a Canon Extender EF 2x III while I was at the Photography Show. On Friday I took it up to South Park, Oxford and took the iconic Oxford scene shot that I have wanted to take for so many years:
And here is a (almost) black and white (mono) version of the same view:
As a photographer in Oxford, it almost feels like a right of passage to take these photos. I am very pleased with the Canon telephoto converter, attached to my 70-200 f2.8 lens. I had read mixed reports about how difficult it can be to use but I have to say that my first experience of it is very pleasing.
The Landmark Trust picked this up and re-posted it on their own Instagram feed where it proved very popular.
While I was out n’ about on Friday with my camera I also passed by The White Hart Pub in Headington and took a few photos for the management, this beeing one of them:
And I also posted this one on Instagram:
