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. ;)

The most beautiful things

A rose.

There are things that I love about flowers that I love taking pictures of them all the time. I love that they’re of different shades. Personally, I love reds and pinks because I think they stand out more than any other color. And I think flowers are one of the most beautiful things ever created. It would be fun to visit a flower nursery within the city and get lost taking photos of a range of roses and mums. How about you? Do you also love shooting flowers?

It’s been good hearing from blog readers. Yes, I’ve been away for quite a while. I just didn’t have the extra time these days. It’s mostly work that consumes my time and I couldn’t stay up late just like I used to. It comes with age, I think. Or maybe not. ;)
