Fire, I’ll take you to learn

Friday night saw the first part of our biennial trip to the local fire station so that the scouts can do their fire safety badge. It also gave me a chance to play with another new toy, a Sigma 28/1.8 lens. If I’d known that I’d need a new laptop, I wouldn’t have bought the lens, but such is life. On the 30D, the 28mm lens works out at the equivalent of 45mm which is pretty much a “normal” lens.

Whilst we were there, they did a demonstration of what happens if you put water onto a chip pan fire which was very impressive and slightly scary, they didn’t take much persuading to repeat the demonstration a few more times.
