Hip shooting the market

The other day, I took my family to one the of the farmer markets.  I thought it would be a good idea to test my strength by taking my Canon 5D with one lens.  I took off the battery pack, and the only lens I took was a 100mm f2.8 macro.  This is an old lens, and it doesn't focus fast, which made me miss a few great opportunities.  Next time I know to take either the 85mm or 50mm.  All the photos were shot from the hip.  Just let the camera hang using the Black Rapid R-Strap .  Just had my hand on the camera, and basically moved it, pretending to avoid hitting people with it.  Because the lens was so slow at focusing, I missed a few great opportunities, but still managed to come out with a few good shots.  At least I think so :) Enjoy!
