Comment - Some shots from our day out on Lamma Island over the weekend. It's only a 20-minute ferry ride from Aberdeen on the Sth Western side of Hong Kong Island, but it almost feels like you're a million miles away.

My 100/2.8 Macro finally arrived, and it's everything the reviews said it would be. Incredibly sharp with an excellent rendering of the out of focus areas. Kodak Portra 400 loves the bright sun, and I was pretty happy with the most of the shots, but I think next time I'm in similar conditions, I'll try overexposing by a stop or so.

Lunch on the beach.
