Lense Love

I scored two new lenses yesterday. One I needed to get for the photography class that Maggie Holmes is teaching. The Canon EF 50 mm 1.4 lense. I have only had time to take a test drive with this baby, but I'm liking what I am seeing thus far. This weekend I will take it out for a spin. We are going to be celebrating Rowan's first birthday on Saturday with a few family members. The cake has been ordered. One for the grownups and one very special bunny cake ALL for Rowan. He'll get his fingers in there and really get into some trouble. And I will be clicking up a storm the whole time. I also am making a trek to Queen Street West to shop at Kol Kid for his gift. This store makes me HAPPY.

Back to the lenses. The 50mm shoots great inside my house where there is not a lot of light in the winter months at 7:00 AM in the morning when I shot these.....Excuse the kid, he has banana all over his face. Or nanas as he likes to call them.

The other lense is the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM Lense. And I was just in the store at the right time for this little gem. I was talking to my local photography store guy about the lense and he said that he sold one to a guy who comes into the store all the time, but because the economy has hit him hard financially he was going to have to sell his equipment. So the shop guy has set up a meeting. And Henri's will still honor the warranty and the lense is still in the box. And I get a REALLY good deal. So. I guess this here baby is in my future too!

PS Tara...I know you're reading this....I will now own the same lense as you. You are shaking in your little booties aren't ya? Perfectly Imperfect by Michelle...Nice ring to it...Hmmm....Now off the steal the words on your website and pawn them off as my own. Tee hee!
