Orchid shopping

There were loads of photos from our orchid shopping trip a few weeks ago that never made it to the blog. It was a week before the annual feast of Candelaria. Besides the usual “peryahan” (carnival) scene, there were lots of fruit vendors and there was this other part of the plaza that was clearly meant for flower lovers (like me!).

New Year, new lens

It’s only recently that I get to do my favorite test shots with my “now not so new” Canon 50mm f1.8 lens. I’ve been dying to have this lens since early last year and was excited to have the lens as an early Christmas gift for myself. Sorry blog, I wasn’t able to tell you about it. :D I used it on parties, but had gotten the same question whenever I let someone else handles my camera. “Doesn’t it zoom?” Haha. I have to explain a few times that it’s a fixed lens, etc. Whew. It got me thinking if I did get the right lens, and for flower photos like these, no question. I think it’s better than my kit lens. ;)
