"Seriously - Just who do you think you are? You are SOOOOO not good enough for me. You have no idea what I can do. My fantastic-ness is just LOST on you."
But, I soldier on.
I recently acquired a really great new lens for my camera. After some investigating, it turns out that the kit lens that I've been using for the last year isn't so hot - and even though I have no idea what I'm talking about *technically*, I sort of agree. Anyway, as many will attest to - I suffer from a fear of all things mechanical. And metal....well, not jewelry. You get the picture. Anyway, this fear kept my fabulous new lens in the box for about two weeks. Today I took the plunge, and below are a few pictures. I have a lot to learn with this puppy - but I can already tell that the zoom is FAR superior than what I was using before. I was definitely after a better zoom when I bought this thing, so I'm happy about that. I love taking candid pictures of the kids. What I don't love, is trying to get in close to capture a great picture only to have them spot me and stop what they're doing! So not only will this lens enable me to preserve childhood memories - I can also work nights as a P.I. if I want. Just....you know. For the thrill of it. While I'm Tivo'ing Grey's Anatomy.
Here's a profile shot of my little boy and his adorable spiky haircut. I LOVE it on him. He smiles at himself in the mirror while I'm spiking his hair in the morning. So.......great. Now I'm sharing the bathroom mirror with a three year old.
Up close and personal. That little nose.....I could top it with a dab of strawberry jam and eat it for breakfast. So cute. The shot itself is a tad hazy....I'm sure it's user error.
"You want me to sell you this car for HOW MUCH?!?"
"Hey, I'm already making zero on this sale, but let's go inside so I can talk to my manager."
"Looks like you've got yourself a
deal little lady."
