ABC Wednesday: "G"

Grandma, where I got all of my good looks :)

Grandma, mom, my aunt and the hubby all contributed to the "Buy Kim a new lens for her birthday" fund. Which means... I got a brand new Nikon 50mm f/1.4 lens for my birthday, YIPEE!!! Behold its beautiful low light picture taking abilities, and its crispness. The only thing I did was a Soft Light layer. I still need to work (a lot) with the manual focus. I am not really good at it yet. For anyone who has the Nikon D40, D40x or D60 you will not be able to automatically focus with this lens, or any 50mm for that matter (these are the times I miss my D50). It takes some practice, but I think I will get the hang of the manual focus.

A great big Thank You to my Grandma, Aunt Rhonda, my mom, and especially my husband for this wonderful gift. I am truly lucky that they did this for me.

For more ABC Wednesday posts head on over to the site and post your own.

Thanks everyone for sticking by me through the lack of posts and writing content. It will all be over in a couple of months, hopefully.

Congratulations on the new lens. It is a good one. The best Canon lens I have is an F2.8 but it is for my film camera. Shucks.

That is a really nice photograph of your grandma.

I only got one Grumpy Alien posted for "G." He is at Thunder Maker

GREAT minds think alike! You must drop by to see a photo of my grandmother who was born in 1892. And my mother who was born in 1920. Lucky you to have such a GREAT new camera! ;D
