    Way up there.
    So last summer I went on a trip to Boston just after acquiring the PL 25. It was the only lens i used on the whole trip. Here are the best photos from the trip.

    Old South Meeting House:

    I walk by the Old State House every day on my way to work. One of these days I'm going to see my self in someone's vacation pictures.

    I think the USS Constitution is one of the most difficult objects to adequately capture in pictures. You can either show the details of a small part - like your nice shot of one mast, or get the whole thing from a distance - which misses the details and scale. It really needs to be seen in person.

    Thanks for sharing.
