Yes...you read that right! I actually spent some money...on myself, and believe it or not...it was surprisingly painless. For a few months, I have been pondering which lens I would want next. I suppose this part of the process is where I did my serious agonizing, so by the time I actually made the online purchase, I was excited and ready. Merry Christmas to me it certainly is! I am thrilled to announce my new Baby.
As of two days ago, I am the proud owner of a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM. Yes...I do realize that is a mouthful, but I have some extra words coming to me since I successfully remained wordless yesterday. wink wink..... Anyhow, what that entirely lengthy name means is....I now have a super fun new lens that will allow me to expand my photography hobby in all sorts of directions. I am beyond blissful with all the possibilities.
These are the first few snaps I took while trying to get the hang of it. I must say it is taking awhile to get used to. It is nearly three times the size of my other lens, and at least that much heavier. At this point I'd say we are quite good acquaintances, but will soon be good friends. I look forward to the day when I can call it my BFF! Yes...I know...I am embarrassingly nerdy! OH well... to each his own, and I am thrilled to be finding my "own!"
Watch out world, here I come....with camera in hand, and it's going to get personal. I am no longer going to stay out of your business, and privacy is NOT an option for you. I'll be looking up, down, over and under. I will peek through your curtains, and look through your mail. So sorry....but it is just how I have to roll. You can't say I didn't give you fair warning!
