About the Cover
The header and the building this month have always vexed me. It's Lackawanna College at North Washington Avenue and Vine Street in Scranton. It used to be Scranton Central High School, home of the Golden Eagles.
Outstanding cupola, beautiful building, but I could never get the right angle on the cupola. And, like Many Scranton buildings, the view is poisoned by wired and utility poles.
I had a plan this time. I was going to use my new, super zoom 300 mm lens, go up Vine Street, and get a better angle. Well, the best laid plans... I forgot about that big hunk of roof obstructing the view as you move up Vine. I really wanted the shot, so I gave up on the 300 mm and put on the 40 mm and walked closer to the building. I love this lens. Tack sharp, as the pros say, and very easy to use.
