Joining the throngs...



Yup, I now own a prime lens. I'm following the crowd. I'm keeping up with the Joneses (or at least Kathleen and Jennifer...) I'm wishing I had grandchildren to practice on instead of canines. But we must work with what we have. Plus, Izzie might read this and be offended. Not that my dog has either a computer or opposing thumbs. But you never know.

I decided to shoot some inanimate objects as well. I know for certain that a) they have no feelings, b) no thumbs (opposing or otherwise) and c) they can't read.

Testing: one, two, three...




Yup, this definitely has the potential to be VERY FUN!

Sigh...now I need a 77mm UV filter...

I'm never satisfied, am I?

Congrats on the new lens. Did you end up getting the same one as Jenny or upgrading to the one with the auto focus?

Your picture of Izzie turned out wonderfully!

Hi, you commented on my pic from the I love faces photo comment, and I just wanted to say thankyou! So I decided to stop on by your blog and I came across this post about your new lens. I see you have a nikon and though I own a canon, I have to say I have secretly been wanting a new prime lens also. And your pics just makes me want one even more! Congrats to you! And maybe evently I can wiggle my way into getting my hubby to buy me one. =)
