Happy Birthday to me!!!

Gary picked up my new lens from the post office today!!!! I have been asking for a 50mm 1.8 lens for eons!

I was so excited that I didn't even wait for him to make it into the kitchen! Connor and I ripped open the package and I popped it right onto my camera (which was conveniently waiting on the island since last night... :) )

Oh, I'm in love! It takes some getting used to, as it has a fixed lens... which means if I want to zoom in and out, I have to move my body! And being a very fast lens (f/1.8), the depth of field is very short, as you can see in this photo:

Connor's nose is in focus but his eyes and teeth are not! By the way, don't you just love the big gap? :) And now his front right tooth is wiggly! I told him that he'd better be careful or he'll have a big gaping hole soon, if he keeps at it! And I reminded him that next time, he should be careful of what he wishes for...! He's been hoping to lose his teeth for a few years now!

Anyhow, here's another while I was playing before dinner:

Don't you just love this one?!? Calvin Klein, here she comes!

(FYI - she peed on the floor just after this shot was taken... :) )

Gary took this one after dinner, as Aili and I were making faces at each other:

We're heading out of town this weekend to Gary's parents' place so I'll have lots of time to practice (I hope!). Lord knows I need it!!

Thanks for looking!
