When I got home from the schooner festivities I couldn't wait to download the images and see what I got. To my horror about 400 of the 436 images I took came out with a blemish! This year I tried something different, in years past I would use my 70mm to 300mm zoom lens about 80% of the time and use my 18mm to 55mm lens for the rest. This time I reversed that. But during the exchange of lenses it appears a piece of lint got into the camera! There was a big black squiggle to the center right of the frame. I had to spend much more time to "brush out" the blemish and I got more to go!
