Summer Flowers & the Last Day of School

Today was the last day of school for our kiddos. For the boy it was a half day and for the girl they had a pool party. (A bit brisk apparently.) After a few pictures of the kids getting on the bus I snapped one or two of my wife’s flowers already blooming brightly up the front path.

These were taken with my new (early Father’s Day present) lens the Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3. I know that pros eschew the “super zoom” but this replaces the 18-55 and 55-200 kit lenses and so far I see no loss in quality but all the benefits of have a single lens (and longer focal length). Obviously I would love a faster lens at longer length for all those indoor soccer games but until I win the lottery, this will do very nicely for trips and every day shooting.
