A Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens arrived in the mail for me today. I thought it was time to do a little upgrading from the kit lens that came with the T2i. And what an upgrade it is!
Check out the recipe at Oh She Glows!
I bought my lens from B&H Photo. I decided to take advantage of their free shipping. Even with the slower shipping option it only took 4 days to get here!
I’m still not done posting photos from our Have Love Will Travel trip this past summer! These photos from the summer and the desert will get me through the cold, damp winter.
My wide angle lens arrived today! I mostly like it, but I don’t love it yet. This is a 17-35mm lens, but I’m thinking that I’d rather have a 10-20mm lens. That would be even wider!
I bought this lens used. That may have been a mistake. The body is actually is great condition. It doesn’t have any defects on it at all. There is however something wrong with the multi-coating on the lens. There aren’t scratches on it, but there’s something on it. That was listing in the posting when I bought this. I can return the lens so I thought I would take my chances with it. Eric thinks that it might be dirt under the lens. I going to take it to a camera store in Seattle tomorrow to see what they think about it. This might be going back.
I did test it out a bit today. I don’t think the marks on the lens are visible on the actual photos. Wide angle lenses are great for sweeping shots like this! Even if there is an ugly condo in front of you.
I couldn’t resist posting a photo of little Juniper! Look at that little pink mouth! She’s mad that I have cameras in my yellow bag and that she can’t fit in there with them.
Tonight Eric went to Bamboo Garden in Seattle for dinner. Sometimes it’s fabulous to not have to cook at home.
I also bought a wide angle lens for my camera tonight! I’m super excited for it to arrive! Do you have any weekend plans?
I didn’t forget about the rest of the photos from our summer trip, and I hope you didn’t either! It takes a long time to post this many photos and I didn’t want to bombard you with too many photos. On our last day in Salt Lake City we took public transportation into the city to watch the Pioneer Day Parade! Pioneer Day is on the 24th of July and it celebrates the arrival of Brigham Young, along with his Mormon followers, into Salt Lake City. I like to describe Pioneer Day as “The 4th of July for Mormons.” I hope that’s not offensive. There was a celebratory atmosphere, balloons, a huge parade and fireworks at night. Kind of sounds like The 4th of July, no? This was by far the best parade I’ve ever been to! This also was the first parade I’ve been to with real floats.
