WW: Snow Day & A New Toy

I got a fun new toy for Christmas (thanks Mommy!!)

Sorry can't take a pic of the lens with the lens, its a bit blurry.  35mm 1.8 with VR!!

I explored what it could do a bit with the kids new Legos



(love the clarity, and playing with the depth of field)

Then played a bit with it in the snow.








I still have a long long way to go, but I am in LOVE already!!

  4. I need to get back to taking more pictures. I had such good ones last year and then tapered off! I think a photo walk might be in order when it warms up!

  6. Before I even realized you were writing about a new camera, I thought, "These pictures are soooo good!" Yet another reminder that I need a "big girl" camera. Enjoy your new toy :)

  8. Beautiful photos!! I'm a horrible photographer, I wish I was better though. (Perhaps if I used something other than my phone they'd improve somewhat...haha)

  11. I just dropped my Nikon and 35 mm lens off to be cleaned and I can't wait to get it back- we need to exchange photo notes.

  12. So I was the FIRST to comment on this this morning, when your comment plug in was showing up. Now it isn't and it looks like I didn't comment. I demand recognition! ;)

    The pictures with the lens are impressive!! I take ALL of my pictures on my iphone these days. It actually takes way better pics from my wack little point and shoot, but I wouldn't mind learning how to take better pictures someday!
