I am glad that what appears to be my favorite subject, flowers, are back. I wouldn’t have guessed that when I first got my camera, but judging by the number of pictures I have taken, it seems to be a close second to pictures of my kids.
I currently have this one as my background at work:
This was growing in my grass in the front yard. I take lots of pictures from my yard, or the neighbors when I go out for walks by myself or with the girls. It is hard to get landscapes in the south end of Minneapolis, but flowers… we got plenty.
I am also happy with the 50mm f1.8 I got. I wasn’t sure if I would like it, not being able to auto focus. I am getting better at it, having finally adjusted the diopter on my camera correctly for me. I especially love the bokeh that I can get with it when I take pictures of flowers.
