...Things may be about to change for me here—they're "repaving" my little two-block-long road starting tomorrow. Think it needs it? :-) I took a bunch of "before" shots two days ago with the little Sigma.
They've done this to several roads in the area over the past two years—your Stimulus dollars at work—and it's a little more involved than a simple resurfacing. They dig great holes and replace giant concrete cisterns and so forth. Makes a fine big mess, and looks swell when they're all done. The project is slated to take five months.
I'm pretty sure this isn't going to be great for my peace and quiet (I'm unusually sensitive to noise and noise pollution, unfortunately). And as for what you have to look forward to, well, I guess you can expect a lot of road construction camera and lens test shots for the foreseeable.
But look at that from the bright side. TOP: More than cats and flowers!

Herman Krieger: "You will likely end up with a lot of tarred images."
Mike replies: Herman, I heard a joke you might like. Man calls the local paper to place a classified ad for his not-quite classic old car. When the ad appears, it reads "Common gear, good condition, $900."
The car he was trying to sell was his Karmann Ghia.
